Working And Finding A Job On The Isle Of Wight

The Isle of Wight is probably thought of by many of us, as that quaint little island retreat that we holidayed in with our parents when we were children. However, the Isle of Wight is a lively community in its own right, offering a great place to both live and work for those lucky enough to inhabit the island.

Within its limited confines, employment opportunities are not very easy to come by, and that is one of the main reasons that the quality and efficiency of the island's employment agencies are so vital to local job hunters. The largest contributors to the island's economy are of course tourism and agriculture. However, there are other established and growing sectors that also have much to offer, including the aeronautical engineering sector, ( the island is home to the manufacture of Island and Trislander aircraft ), and the marine industry.

The retail sector is also thriving and there are several breweries on the island too. With fast links to the mainland already well developed and reliable, some of the island's job hunters travel across the Solent to nearby Portsmouth or Southampton to broaden their search area.

One of the best agencies on the island is The Hire Standard and they cover all of the important employment sectors. With offices in both Newport (found on Grays Walk) and London, the opportunities that they have on their books move at a furious rate, and they recommend that job hunters seeking employment in the bustling retail sector, or the busy tourist support industries, should actually pick up the telephone to establish their applications at the earliest opportunity.

The Isle of Wight is actually great place to live, with a stunning coastline, some fabulous woodlands, and wetlands that are sanctuary to a host of rare species of dragon flies and wild fowl. But looking for employment within the boundaries of the island is challenging, and that is why you need to work with the best recruitment specialists.

WP Recruitment are a top flight agency and they work across the entire employment spectrum, recruiting temporary, contract, and permanent staff. They are a member of the IOW Chamber of Commerce, and they won the business excellence award in 2006. Job hunters looking to get into any of the specialist engineering employment opportunities or who would like to gain entrance to the high rising hi-tech industry should register with WP as soon as they can, you can visit them at the Corner House on Lugley Street in Newport.

For job seekers seeking an industrial qualification, Isle of Wight Industrial Group Training Services are heaven sent. They run training courses and apprenticeships across many industrial sectors, and offer a great opportunity for the first time job hunter to establish him/herself on a career path ( offices at Dodnor Lane, Newport ). The council also have a section on their website for vacancies, visit www.Iwight.com for more details.
