About our Office

The Commission regulates the telecoms sector on an ex-ante basis through the imposition of remedies such as Price Controls, Non-Discrimination, Transparency, Accounting Separation, etc. It is expected that we will soon have specific ex-post competition powers on enactment of the Communications Bill 2018.

While ex-ante regulation in the Isle of Man is maturing there is still room for development in the regulatory space. The first Market Reviews were carried out on Island in 2011 and we have recently completed a second round of Market Reviews, and are now commencing implementing the Decisions and Remedies. 

In addition, the Island’s Government has committed to supporting the roll out of Fibre-to-the-Premises as part of a National Broadband Plan (NBP) and it is expected that we will have a role to play in ensuring sustainable competition in the telecoms sector post the award of the NBP.

As part of our remit to foster sustainable competition in the Island's telecoms sector, we have been moving towards a more proactive approach towards compliance monitoring and enforcement, and your role will be central in leading in this space.

Why join us?

We can offer support for you to excel in your role and career, with learning and development open to all employees.

Within this role, you can have a better work-life balance with flexible working options.

Interview expenses and a relocation package of up to £10,000 based on receipts is available for this role. For any further information on the relocation package please contact To find out more about the lifestyle, culture and living/working on the Isle of Man please visit
