Remote Recruitment and the Isle of Man

At Arc, we’re a UK wide recruiter covering many corners of the country from Aberdeen down to Brighton. Although we have 7 permanent offices, we also specialise in remote recruitment and staffing.

One of the more interesting locations we support with our staffing solutions is the Isle of Man.

For those of you who do not know the Isle of Man is in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland and is home to 80,000 people.

Since May 2019 we have recruited in the Isle of Man to support major events, such as the TT races, for long standing partners of Arc, the Eventist Group. The TT races are internationally famous motorbike race which takes place on the island’s public roads over a 37.73 mile course.

Arc has a pool of approximately 50 workers on the island who perform multi-skilled hospitality roles for the TT events and other large-scale events on the island. Arc managers have travelled to the Isle of Man to successfully recruit and train local people and to ensure everything goes smoothly on event days.

Given the Isle of Man is not part of the United Kingdom Arc had to set up a separate payroll and draw up new employment contracts to ensure we complied with the relevant legislation and taxation rules enforced by the Isle of Man government.

To date this project has been a great success and is something we are very proud of. Lucy, our client from Eventist Group, very helpfully agreed to write the following testimonial for us as part of this project.

“We have a great working relationship with Arc which we are proud to have developed with not only the Company Directors, but their whole hospitality team. We trust everyone at Arc to always be honest with us and know we can reach out to them when we take on new projects.

“When we were awarded the contract to provide the hospitality services on the Isle of Man for their world famous TT races I didn’t hesitate to contact Paul at Arc immediately for help and advice and to find a way to work together on such an exciting project.

“We needed to have alongside us a team which we trusted would go the extra mile and ensure we delivered the best service possible, I knew the team at Arc would go above and beyond … and they didn’t disappoint.

We had to move quickly and they didn’t hesitate to rise to the challenge – flying out to the island to host meetings and interviews, logistics planning, joining us on site for training days and then being at the events with us, from start to finish, to ensure everything came together.

You can plan the best events and organise everything to the finest detail, but it really is about the staff. They may be the only people our customers and client speak to at an event so we need to have the confidence they represent what we believe in and the service standards we want to deliver... and this team didn’t disappoint!”

We cannot wait to further develop and improve our presence and recruitment solutions on the Isle of Man in the future. Likewise, we are always open to new opportunities in other geographic territories which may be off the United Kingdom mainland so please bear us is mind if this applies to your business and you require recruitment support!
