Nearly 500 nationals and permanent residents have now registered to gain re-entry into the British Virgin Islands and government is making a public appeal in search persons interested in working as security officers.
Those hired will be required to monitor and provide 24/7 security to the returnees; all of whom must go under immediate quarantine for at least two weeks.
A government-commissioned media release issue said on Friday said “the Office of the Deputy Governor is inviting Belongers and valid work permit holders with no criminal record who are interested in working as security officers to contact the office for immediate engagement”.
When BVI News made subsequent inquiries as to whether persons will be required to have experience to as serve as a government-sanctioned security officer, the Deputy Governor’s Office said “preference” will be given to applicants with some level of training in security services.
Applicants will also be subject local vetting as well, BVI News was further told. Interested persons are asked to contact 284-468-3000 or e-mail email@example.com for further details.
