Second Chances Programme
Caymanians with a prior conviction and who have served their sentence, are invited to register with NWDA in order to be considered for employment opportunities with the Cayman Islands Government, through the Second Chances Programme – 2019 Cohort.
Ideal candidates will be persons who:
- have demonstrated efforts towards their own rehabilitation by actively engaging in rehabilitation programmes and making productive use of their time while incarcerated;
- are able to provide character references from persons within the rehabilitation programmes or persons they have worked with in the community who can attest to their reliability and work ethic;
- are identified as being at low-risk of re-offending; and
- have skillsets that align with the workforce needs of the civil service, with the goal of allowing them to demonstrate those abilities and eventually lead to long-term employment prospects within either government or the private sector.
Once candidates are registered and vetted by the NWDA for suitability, the PoCS will seek to place 5 candidates as part of the 2019 cohort. The types of opportunities available will depend largely on the individual’s experience and qualifications. The goal is to allow persons to work in areas aligned to their skillset. Candidates will be interviewed by the relevant department to be considered for specific roles.
