The BVI’s are a popular island destination in the Caribbean. If you are looking to move to the Caribbean and need a job, or if you are interested in a job for the season, or a more permanent post with a view to moving there later; there are several options open to you.
Within the Caribbean are all the islands you’ve heard about; Cayman, British Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos, Bermuda, Bahamas, Cuba, Dominican Republic, plus hundreds more you probably have not heard of at all.
Average temperatures there are around 30 degrees Celsius, or between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and water temperatures average around 27 Celsius or 80 Fahrenheit.
If you like it warm and sunny, this is the place for you.
There are essentially two types of Caribbean job:
1 Tourism/Hospitality: these are usually short-term, seasonal jobs where you can have some fun and work at a hotel, beach club, dive shop, or other tourism type position. Examples of this kind of job would be waitress, spa position, dive instructor, tour coordinator. This type of Caribbean job usually appeals to a younger crowd. You can also find work on the yacht charters.
2 Skilled: these are longer term contracts that utilise your deep skill (IT, Law, Insurance, Banking, etc.) to provide a skill that does not readily exist on the islands. Make great money, work hard, and have a good time. Examples of this type of job would be Lawyer, Accountant, IT Support, Software Developer, Sales Manager, or other skilled trade. This type of Caribbean Job will appeal to job seekers that have established a career or trade.
There are a number of websites out there that list available Caribbean Jobs. Be aware though, you may find that many are out of date and some have no job postings at all. Here are a couple you may find helpful:
