As an appendix to my earlier post on finding a job in Bermuda, one thing I didn’t go into detail on was the list of restricted and closed job categories that non-Bermudians are not eligible to apply for.
The list of ‘closed’ jobs is as follows:
- Airline ground agent
- Floor supervisor (making sure the floors don’t get up to mischief?)
- Labourer, general
- Office receptionist
- Taxi driver
- Wall paper technician (my personal favorite for its randomness and lack of opportunity – I have only seen one room that was wallpapered, in a reinsurance office, that’s it!)
However, the new Minister is charge of immigration issues, Minister for Economy, Trade and Industry, Kim Wilson (former Attorney General under Ewart Brown), is reviewing this list of closed jobs. Already proving to be a welcome departure from her dogmatic predecessor, Colonel Burch.
So, non-Bermudian wallpaper technicians, stand by your beds. Bermuda might need you to wallpaper some reinsurance boardrooms.
