New roles to support growth in the Isle of Man’s financial services sectors 21 February 2013

The Isle of Man Department of Economic Development is seeking to recruit two additional talented business development professionals to help support economic growth and to pursue new business opportunities in financial services.

The Isle of Man’s Parliament, Tynwald, this week gave its approval for the Department to recruit for such positions outside of Civil Service constraints.

The Department’s Director of Financial Services John Spellman commented:

"These are significant new roles which will cover responsibility for retail financial services and corporate financial services respectively. Although these are challenging times for the financial services sectors globally, these sectors still represent a third of the Isle of Man economy and are internationally recognised and respected."
"These roles will play an important part in supporting both local and international businesses to pursue the opportunities arising from the development of both new products and new international markets."

Both roles are non-Civil Service and are offered on a two year, fixed term basis. Remuneration will be negotiable based on the skills and experience of the individuals and reward will be set against strict key performance indicators.

The new roles are being funded from internal savings that the Department has achieved following a recent review into its structure which resulted in the removal of some managerial and administrative roles.

Further information about the roles can be obtained from John Spellman, Director of Financial Services, by telephone at 01624 686400 or by email at, or by visiting

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 11th March 2013.
