Hotel Jobs in Bermuda
Hotel and Hospitality industry used to be the biggest job provider in Bermuda. However the International Business that has flourished over the years in Bermuda has overtaken the tourism and hospitality industry and has become one of the largest employment providers in the island. But, the hotels and tourism industry remains as a significant contributor to Bermuda's economy and offers many job opportunities. Like any other jobs, here too Bermudians are given preference over expatriates.
But there is a large gap between demand and the supply, so there is always job prospects for all including expatriates. Another important thing about the hotels industry is that it requires most of the staff to be working through holidays, week-ends and even in night shifts. This is the nature of the industry where services are required to be provided round the clock and all seven days a week.
This odd service hour requirement in the hotel jobs has been a major deterrent for the local Bermudians to pursue their career in hotels industry. They prefer to take up jobs in other industry where the work-life balance is far easier. So, this has opened up the hotel jobs widely to the expatriates. You can come in from other countries on a work permit and take up a job on a contract basis, i.e., for a fixed period. The contract can get renewed subject to the term limit of the work permit.
While the overall job capacity in the hotel industry had been gradually falling over the last several years, recently though there has been an upward swing. Some large hotel constructions have started taking place in Bermuda which gives a very positive signal. There are few more hotels whose plans are being approved by the Bermuda government.
This has been further augmented by some cheap airlines that have started operating between Bermuda and countries like Canada and US. Remember, visitors who come by air require hotel accommodations and not those who come by cruise. So increase in aircraft passengers is crucial to the development of hotels industry in Bermuda.
