Job fair expected to boost employment figures
A major job fair scheduled for next month is expected to boost employment as the economy rebounds from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
An advertisement in yesterday’s edition of Pointe Xpress Newspaper by Barbuda Ocean Club announced job opportunities including construction, utilities, hospitality services, turf maintenance and greenskeeping.
The job fair will be held on 8th March, 2022 at Police Recreation Grounds from 8:30 am to noon.
In a letter addressed to St. John’s Rural North MP, Charles Fernandez dated 10th February, 2022, PLH Project President, Justin Wilshaw wrote the job opportunities are for positions at their property at Coco Point and Palmetto Point in Barbuda.
“Barbuda Ocean Club is committed to the sustained growth that it has established, particularly by maintaining an environment where our current and prospective team members and their families develop and thrive,” Wilshaw penned.
In his presentation of the budget earlier this month, Prime Minister Gaston Browne said the PLH Ocean Club project will continue to play a major role in Barbuda’s development, with a further US $ 10 million expected to be spent on the single largest private sector investment in the Caribbean, and construction work expected to be completed in June, 2022.
