Bermuda Employment Opportunities
The work permit application is made by the employer and is issued by the Bermuda Department of Immigration.
However, before the application is made, the employer needs to advertise and make sure that there is no qualified Bermudian who is eligible and available for the job. And only after ensuring that, the hiring company can make application for the work permit for an expat.
So given that a Bermudian will always be given preference, do you think it's a big challenge to get a job in Bermuda? Actually not. Firstly because there are large number of job positions where Bermuda does not have locally available skilled people.
Secondly, there are many jobs where the Bermudians are not interested to work. So there is always plenty of job opportunities in Bermuda, both in private and public sectors. Remember, over 20% of Bermuda's population are expatriates and working in the island on work permit.
