Isle of Man Government


“We increased candidate satisfaction to 95% within just 1 month by using Jobtrain”


The Isle of Man, home to the Manx flag and the world famous TT motorbike races, has been using Jobtrain’s online recruitment software since 2014.

Diverse recruitment needs

Jobtrain is flexible enough to manage the extremely diverse recruitment needs of the Isle of Man, from managing recruitment for doctors and teachers to police officers and bus drivers (the list goes on!)

Jobtrain enables the Isle of Man Government to have tailored applications and interview and onboarding processes for the different roles required that are all managed via Jobtrain.

We were delighted to be the Isle of Man’s chosen online recruitment software provider following a rigorous and competitive tender exercise.

“We increased candidate satisfaction to 95% within just 1 month by using Jobtrain”

The Isle of Man Government puts great store in ensuring that candidates who apply for jobs with them have an excellent experience. They track candidate satisfaction regularly through surveys and discovered that more than a few candidates were frustrated at the lengthy process they had to go through to apply for a role.

Working with Jobtrain, the IoM Government introduced our two-stage application process – allowing candidates to apply quickly online without the hassle of completing a full application form at the outset.

The result? Well, a whopping 95% of candidates felt that the application process was good or outstanding following this change.
