- Whether the wages and conditions offered are less favourable than those normally applying in the particular trade or occupation in the Isle of Man.
- Any career development policy or rotation policy of the applicant.
Additional considerations regarding the person concerned
- If the person concerned engages or intends to engage in a construction trade, whether he or she is suitably qualified to do so and holds a relevant skills card, as may be specified by the Department.
