Sunday February 24,2013 : ISLE OF MAN ON HEAD OF E-GAMING HUNT
 
Department of Economic Development looking outside of Civil Service
 
The Isle of Man Department of Economic Development is on the search for a new Head of e-Gaming and the position need not be filled from the civil service as the Isle of Man's Parliament, Tynwald, gave its approval for recruitment for such positions outside of Civil Service constraints.
 
The Department said it is looking for a highly talented individual to drive the success of e-Gaming and to attract new inward investment for an important sector that accounts for 8 percent of the whole of Isle of Man's National Income and employs over 700 people.
 
Chief Executive of the Department of Economic Development Chris Corlett commented:  "The Department has worked closely with the private sector to develop a revised strategy for e-gaming which capitalises on the great potential for further growth in our economy, jobs and Government income. The new Head of e-Gaming will lead the implementation of this strategy and as such will enjoy a very high profile in the industry both on and off the Isle of Man."
 
The role is a non-Civil Service position and will be offered on a two year, fixed term basis.  Remuneration will be negotiable based on the skills and experience of the individual and reward will be set against strict key performance indicators.
 
The new post is being funded from internal savings that the Department has achieved following a recent review into its structure which resulted in the removal of some managerial and administrative roles.
