Two of the Island's most popular websites - manx.net and isleofman.com - will soon feature the latest local job vacancies thanks to a partnership between Manx Telecom and employed.im.

Manx Telecom owns both manx.net and isleofman.com - the former is primarily focused on providing news (including on demand news channel MTTV), weather and classifieds for local residents, while the latter is focused on an off-Island audience which includes potential inward investors and those looking to live and work here.

Details about job vacancies will be sourced from the Island's jobs and careers portal employed.im, which is developed and supported by PDMS. 

Employed.im is the Isle of Man's free careers portal for students, job seekers, job changers and employers, able to support members throughout their entire career. It can be used as a free resource to update and manage your CV, or to stay in the loop for careers related events, resources and training opportunities. Island employers, large and small, can create a business profile and post job opportunities on the employed.im site for free. More can be found out about employed.im and it's benefits here

David Smith, Manx Telecom Marketing Director, commented: "Whilst unemployment may be low on the Island, there is still significant demand for job vacancy listings both from businesses and employees. Rather than have to wait for printed job listings, our online channels allow people to search at any time. We're delighted to be working with PDMS - it's a great example of two Isle of Man technology companies collaborating to help local businesses recruit the staff they need to grow, and to help employees find the right job for them."

Chris Gledhill, PDMS Managing Director, added: "Our ambition is to make employed.im the comprehensive source of information on jobs, training, work experience and job opportunities in the Isle of Man. Membership is completely free for individuals and for Manx businesses. This tie-in with Manx Telecom is great news for our members as it provides a huge amount of additional exposure for their vacancies - at no cost!"

The manx.net homepage will feature a 'jobs' tab and there will be a new jobs section within the local and business areas of isleofman.com.

It will be possible to search for job vacancies by sector, tenure, contract type, and by the date that the vacancies were posted. On average, manx.net generates more than three million page views every month, so it's a great place for job vacancies to be seen.
