With a BA (Hons) in Playwork from Leeds Metropolitan University, she has previously worked within retail businesses but wanted to take on a more techy career change. She said “My new role at PDMS is a fantastic opportunity.

Tom Smith has relocated to the Isle of Man from Scotland to take on the role of Software Developer. He joins our expanding Registries and Regulatory team and will be developing systems for some of our public sector clients. Tom comes from an entirely self-taught background and has spent over 4 years previously working as a developer in and around Glasgow, most recently at M&Co. Tom says “I haven’t been here too long but so far I am enjoying life on the Island as much as I can whilst settling in. It’s been a busy first few weeks but everyone is extremely pleasant to be around which makes a difference!”.

One of our youngest recruits is Georgia Vernon who has joined PDMS as a Trainee Graphic Designer in our Design team. Her role includes working on a wide variety of design related projects from logos to websites for clients and also to support PDMS’ marketing activities. While Georgia was in full time education at Ballakermeen Sixth Form, for the last 6 months she spent her Tuesday afternoons at PDMS as part of a long term work experience programme. With her talent and keen eye in website design, she was offered the opportunity to pursue a career in Graphic Design. She said “I’m really enjoying working in the Design team at PDMS. I’ve been faced with new challenges, for example learning to use new software, but the team are very helpful and supportive.”
