Premier Burt – Careers in the Public Service

Earlier today, the Premier, the Hon. David Burt, JP, MP, delivered a Ministerial Statement highlighting the introduction of a comprehensive Public Service Career Guide that showcases the varied and rewarding opportunities in Government.

The Guide explains the qualifications, skills, and competencies needed for different roles within the public sector and is part of the broader “Careers in the Public Service” campaign.

The “Careers in the Public Service” awareness effort seeks to:

  • Reach qualified, capable young Bermudians to prepare them to become public officers;
  • Reshape the perceptions about careers in Government; and
  • Attract individuals for Hard to Fill posts in the public service.

And earlier today, following his House of Assembly presentation, Premier Burt met with two of the many individuals in Government who are doing works of excellence in the public service – Mr. Joshua Powell (Marine Operations Centre Controller) and Mr. Vernon Harrison (First Class Branch Pilot).

Both came through the Marine and Ports Services apprenticeship training programme, and today, they personally shared their success stories with the Premier. They are also part of the “Careers in the Public Service” campaign and serve as Public Service Career Ambassadors.
