Immigration recruits selected from over 300

| 08/11/2011

(CNS): Thirteen diverse individuals make up the latest group to join the country’s immigration department recruited from 321 applicants. From mature adults with experience in fields as diverse as hospitality and banking to young recruits in their first job the recruits started work on Monday.  Welcomed into the ranks by top officials, the acting chief officer from internal and external affairs said government’s uniformed divisions are very special in their own right. The group commences six months of intensive classroom work, as well as practical instruction and cross-training with other unformed agencies. Those who complete training and graduate next year will work at the air and sea ports.

Required to have a command of local laws as well as an understanding of human behaviour, the officers must be versed in geography, psychology and sociology, insofar as they relate to immigration.

“While your logo – a shield – symbolises border protection, this goes hand-in-hand with good customer service.” While encouraging personal initiative, Eric Bush said. “It’s your strength in numbers that will get you through any challenges.”
