About the island and its’ health service

The Isle of Man is a self-governing crown dependency within the British Isles. The population of the Isle of Man is approximately 85,000. Those living on the Island, benefit from great lifestyle opportunities, open spaces, a safe environment, great education and a real sense of community. There are numerous events, clubs and societies in almost everything you can imagine, from cycling to sailing and kayaking to horse riding. Isle of Man residents benefit from lower tax rates than a lot of countries in the EU and a simpler, more efficient system of calculation.

The Island’s healthcare is provided by a National Health Service based on that in the United Kingdom but is independently financed and administered within the Isle of Man.  Many of the changes brought about to the UK National Health Service, as a consequence of the extensive reorganisations of recent years have not been adopted in the Isle of Man.

Noble’s Hospital is situated in the capital of the Isle of Man and equipped to the very latest standards with an Education and Training Centre and library situated in the grounds.

If you would like to achieve a fantastic work/life balance with a professionally satisfying job whilst living in one of the safest, least congested and most beautiful parts of the British Isles then this is the job for you!
