Immigration aims to tempt potential future recruits

| 19/07/2014

(CNS): The chief immigration officer is hoping to tempt more than a dozen young people into careers with her department. A group of students from school and university began a summer internship programme with one of government's most important and often controversial departments last month. The fourteen young people have been deployed in various different offices relating to immigration including on the boards in order to experience the functions within the department. Officials said two have been posted to passport offices, two to the airport while two have gone to the Cayman Centre to work with the boards. The remaining eight will be stationed at the ever busy headquarters.

The placements are part of the Portfolio of the Civil Service Students Internship summer programme designed to give young people the chance to consider government as a career option.

"It's a pleasure to be able to assist these young people in harnessing and developing the fundamental skills necessary for success in the workplace,' said the chief immigration Officer, Linda Evans. "We look forward to them having a successful and productive two months with the Department through the collaborative effort of all staff."
