Ministry of Labour Announces New Employment Initiative

Tuesday, August 4th, 2020

The Ministry of Labour is pleased to announce that through a collaboration with Pro-Tone Cleaning Services Ltd (PT), and Bermuda Cleaning Limited (BC), twelve Bermudians will have the opportunity to secure full-time employment over the next six months. 

This initiative will provide quantified time-structured employment opportunities for Bermudian trainees. Both PT and BC have committed to hiring one new Bermudian employee per company, per calendar month for the period July 2020 to December 2020, totalling 12 new hires. 

In support of this initiative, the Ministry of Labour will provide a list of candidates from the Department of Workforce Development. It must be stated that the new Bermudian hires are not limited to this list. Individuals are encouraged to submit applications directly to either Pro-Tone Cleaning Services Ltd. or Bermuda Cleaning Limited for consideration.

When applying, all candidates must submit the following documents:

  • Resume
  • Work references;
  • Character references; and a 
  • Police Record Certificate.

The Minister of Labour, the Hon Jason Hayward, JP, MP, said, “The public will recall that before the COVID-19 pandemic, many Bermudians were gainfully employed. However, in the wake of the pandemic, we find many of our countrymen and women unemployed, underemployed, and facing financial hardships.”

“The objective of this collaboration is to assist Bermudians in overcoming the present financial challenges by providing a stop-gap work opportunity. This will allow individuals to generate income until they can secure employment in their chosen field or buy time for those who are considering the current market conditions and contemplating a career change. By securing employment, Bermudians will be better positioned to overcome the challenges faced by many and I encourage anyone interested in this opportunity to apply”
