We have not turned into some sort of job website overnight but the fact is that Islay has quite a few vacancies at the moment and unemployment figures seem to be very low, although I can't provide any official figures on that. Staff is in demand in all sorts of businesses and as tourism is growing, resulting in the hotel and catering business in Islay growing as well, more staff is needed to provide a good service. Job adverts on Islay are mostly published in the Ileach Newspaper so if you are looking for work that's probably the first place I would look. Finding a job is one thing, finding accommodation if you're not already living on Islay is another thing and mostly almost impossible to get. Therefore it's great that some employers offer not only work but accommodation too such as Bridgend Hotel & Restaurant, they currently have three vacant positions, see the job advert below:

And as I wrote above, for more job opportunities on Islay make sure to visit the Ileach Newspaper where you can get a paper or digital subscription worldwide.
