The Cayman Islands Government invites anyone who has ever considered a career in public safety to the largest ever Public Safety Recruitment Fair and Expo on Thursday, 16 May 2019.
With eight participating departments, this year’s event will take place at the University College of the Cayman Islands’ (UCCI) Sir Vassel Johnson Hall from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. for students and 4 – 7 p.m. for adults.
The joint drive will be hosted by the Cayman Islands Coast Guard, the Cayman Islands Customs and Border Control (CBC), the Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS), the Department of Public Safety Communications (DPSC), the Health Services Authority (HSA), Her Majesty’s Cayman Islands Prison Service (HMCIPS), the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) and Workforce Opportunities Residency Cayman (WORC).
Interested persons will be able to speak one-on-one with representatives and learn more about the variety of public safety career opportunities each agency has to offer. WORC leaders will also be available to meet with employers and job seekers wanting to register with the department’s new online platform.
During the event staff members will deliver brief presentations and perform live demonstrations that showcase their specialist skills.
Workshops that focus on self-presentation will also be available to job seekers. These will look at resume writing and interview skills, as well as at social media in the workplace and how a person’s online presence can impact their employment opportunities.
“Although each of the departments participating in this year’s event has their own specialisations, they all have a common thread which is to protect and serve,” the Premier, Hon. Alden McLaughlin, said. “This is a great opportunity for the public to learn more about the variety career opportunities in public safety available in the Cayman Islands, and I strongly encourage interested persons to accept the challenge and be an everyday hero for your community.”
The Public Safety Recruitment Fair and Expo is free and open to all members of the public. The first 1,000 attendees will receive an event tote bag.
