Department of Information and Public Relations
Effective January 1, 2019, the Labour Department will no longer be accepting job vacancy advertisements that fail to satisfy its requirements.
Employers and media outlets (i.e. online and printed) are reminded that in order to be deemed satisfactory by the Department, job vacancy advertisements should list the following information:
1. The employer/business name (as listed on its valid trade licence)
2. Reliable contact information (i.e. telephone number and email address)
3. Job title
4. Duties of the position (i.e. brief or detailed)
5. Any other information deemed necessary by the employer
The Labour Department remains committed to ensuring that the needs of the workforce are met, and that BVIslanders/Belongers are given first preference to all jobs available in the Territory.
