Panacea, a pharmaceutical consultancy based in the Isle of Man, took advantage of the Department for Enterprise's Graduate Role Incentive, which provides financial assistance to local businesses looking to create new graduate roles. Panacea has hired a number of graduates as a result of the scheme: 'The Graduate Role Incentive has been of great assistance to our company - offering us greater scope to increase our annual graduate intake. The financial assistance has also enabled us to offer a competitive salary for graduates with fast-track career options for those with a scientific degree, similar to opportunities available elsewhere, such as in the UK. All our graduates are progressing well and are seeing the increased level of opportunities available to them in the Isle of Man to launch their careers on an accelerated pathway, while enjoying the benefits and balance offered by Island life.'
