The Graduate Role Incentive formed under the Department for Enterprise’s Financial Assistance Scheme with funding provided by the Economic Recovery Group opened for applications on 11th May 2021. The scheme is designed to provide short-term internship opportunities for students and interested individuals looking for work experience across different industries and sectors of the Manx economy.
The Incentive is available for new, full-time roles which require an RQF Level 6 qualification or higher, at a minimum starting gross salary of £21,000 per year. All applications must carry a development plan for the graduate to ensure they have sufficient opportunities for professional growth.

The Manx Internship Programme provides work-based placements for young people to gain experience and to support businesses with additional resources during a challenging time.
The Programme, led by Business Isle of Man, an Executive Agency of the Department for Enterprise, provides wage support for intern’s equivalent to the current rate of the National Living Wage (which as at May 2021 is £10.19 per hour), for up to 35 hours per week for private, public and third sector organisations, with placements lasting for an average of eight weeks.
Organisations will be matched with interested individuals and students who are looking to gain real world work experience and improve their CV, as well as those considering a change in career.
