Bermuda Government Jobs
Government of Bermuda is the biggest employer in the island and offers jobs in both direct government organizations as well in other public sector units where it has major holdings. Over 10% of the jobs in Bermuda are Government jobs. So, do the expatriates or non-Bermudians willing to work in Bermuda have a good chance in getting government jobs.
Yes. There are many expatriates who work in Bermuda civil services jobs. Like in private sector, a government job also requires a work permit. Government jobs in Bermuda for non-Bermudians are usually contract jobs for a fixed period. However like in case of any other jobs, the Bermudians are given the first preference. So if an eligible and qualified Bermudian is found for the job (through ads in local newspapers), he or she will always be given a preference over an expatriate.
In fact, recently the government of Bermuda has started a Bermudianization program. As part of this, they are training up Bermudians so that they acquire skills and hold senior government positions in Bermuda. However, there are plenty of opportunities for expatriates as well. Usually the salaries in Government jobs are quite high. If you have a qualified bachelors or a higher degree, you can expect a salary starting from $75,000 onwards.
