Expat Advice: Working in Hamilton, Bermuda

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Hamilton

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Offshore Insurance and Tourism.

Government has a policy of actively recruiting Bermudians so any expat here must be better qualified than a local (not hard!) and there must not be a local who can do the job.

Very few opportunities to move jobs once here - permit is issued for specific job for specific time frame

What type of work do you do and how did you find your job?

Teaching - Found job through the Times Ed Supplement online (www.tesjobs.co.uk)

William Russell's private medical insurance will cover you and your family wherever you may be. Whether you need primary care or complex surgery, you'll have access to the best hospitals & doctors available. Unlike some insurers, we also include medical evacuation and mental health cover in our plans (except SilverLite). Get a quote from our partner, William Russell.

How did you obtain your work permit? What advice would you have for others about work permits?

Permit arranged by the government or employer here. Very simple. If employer will not arrange the permit do not come - they are not a legitimate outfit.

If you were transferred abroad by your employer, were you guaranteed a job upon repatriation? What type of mentoring programs does your employer offer?

N/A - although teaching is in great need of teachers worldwide so can pretty much write own ticket

What advice would you offer others about finding jobs and working abroad?

Research, research and then research. talk to people who have been there ( and not just on holiday). Go online and listen to what people say about the place - be aware of bitter and cynical people - but then again what has turned them this way?

Go to as many sites/books/sources as you can - forewarned is forearmed
