At the suggestion of an island business, we have set up – a job listings site for the Scottish islands. Our goal is to bring the available opportunities together in one easy to use place; helping keep our young people in the islands, and giving others the confidence to make a full-time move.

We are driven by passion for our islands.

Everything we do is focused on finding ways to make sure our islands are strong and resilient for the future.
