Jada Connor, Recruitment Administrator

UCCI graduate to recruitment superstar.


In 2021, Jada Connor graduated with an associate degree in social sciences from UCCI and was still undecided on where she would go in her future career. It was during this time that CML Offshore Recruitment was in search of their first Financial Services Recruitment Apprentice – the rest was history.

CML’s Apprenticeship program welcomes aspiring HR talent in Cayman looking to get a promising start in the industry. As part of a 24-month rotational program, the apprentice works towards a professional HR designation whilst gaining exposure across recruitment, immigration, and HR consulting. As a fully engaged employee within CML’s financial services recruitment team, Jada gained invaluable experience as CML’s first apprentice. Two years and one HR certification later (the CISHRP certificate of HR Management), CML is excited to announce that Jada has completed her apprenticeship and become an integral part of the team with her recent promotion to Recruitment Administrator.

“While studying at UCCI, I worked part-time between classes in the Student Life Department. I helped students apply for jobs and gain experience in their field of study by contacting businesses in their industry and forming a connection. In essence, I was acting like a recruiter for students at UCCI. Helping companies and students piqued my interest in HR, and I decided to shift my career focus from Psychology to HR with a Psychology background,” explains Jada Connor.

“I had previously met Hannah Jackson, just finishing her apprenticeship with CML’s sister company Nova Recruitment. She talked about how much she had enjoyed her program and recommended I apply for the next one, but due to school commitments, I missed out. After graduation, I still found myself unemployed, but I saw CML’s FS Recruitment Apprenticeship announcement and jumped at the opportunity. I can’t believe that was over two years ago. I am now knowledgeable in recruitment, HR consulting and immigration services. In my new role as Recruitment Administrator, every day is different.”

During the apprenticeship, Jada’s typical day included sourcing candidates, preparing resumes, conducting candidate meetings/interviews, and supporting the recruitment consultants, all while studying for her HR certification. During her time in the rotational program, Jada collaborated with CML’s HR consulting and immigration teams, gaining a deep understanding of Cayman’s immigration law.

“Since September 2021, Jada has been an integral part of our CML Financial Services Recruitment team”, said Will Koutney, Co-Owner and lead of the FS Recruitment team at CML.

“Jada’s journey with CML has been inspiring. Jada proved that learning on the job can be as successful as a formal education. With her hard work and dedication, Jada completed the CISHRP certificate of HR Management, gaining invaluable knowledge to pair with her on-the-job experience. Our holistic approach to HR and recruitment strategy is evident in Jada’s success story, and it’s great to see that she has decided to become a permanent member of the team with her recent promotion to Recruitment Administrator.”
