ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Employers and media outlets (i.e. online and printed) are reminded of the proper way to advertise job vacancies.

According to a press release from the Government Information Service dated December 27, 2018, Effective January 1, 2019, the Labour Department will no longer be accepting advertisements that fail to satisfy its requirements.

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 release notes that employers should also submit their job vacancies to the Labour Department as there may be suitably qualified candidates registered in the department's Application Pool for them to consider.

The Labour Department says that it assists BVIslanders/Belongers in finding appropriate employment as well as assists persons with resumé writing, interviewing techniques, job decorum and performance, and job placement.
