The search for the Island's next Lieutenant Governor has begun.
Adam Wood, the incumbent, is due to retire in April next year, following the end of his five-year term of office.
The person who holds the position is the Lord of Mann's representative here.
According to a statement from the government, candidates should have a distinguished record of Crown, public or other relevant service at the highest level.
Many of the people to have held the position here previously had careers in the British armed forces.
