Cayman Islands Announcement
At the beginning of the year, whilst on holiday with my parents, and through discussions with a friend who had done it, I decided I was going to apply to work in the Cayman Islands. Immediately after passing board I sent through my applications, and soon after I was asked to do a phone interview.
The interview process is always harrowing as you have to tell your prospective employer how absolutely fantastic you are which always feels uncomfortable and wrong.
After two interviews, and sending through a few items I was offered a contract to work in Grand Cayman for 18 months. My thinking behind accepting this offer is that firstly, I will be paid very well. If I can keep my expenses down on the notoriously expensive island, I’ll be able to save a lot and travel like crazy. Traveling is currently number one on my priority list as I look to experience new cultures and open up my mind.
Secondly, even though I may work hard, the Cayman office I applied to appears to be good at allowing their employees a work life balance. This is something I’ve been struggling to maintain in my third year of articles, as the overtime clocks up and the sleep clocks down.
I signed the contract in early April, but it was conditional on them clearing certain things and so I didn’t want to shout it from the rooftops before it was 100%.
I’m super excited, and can’t wait to start this exciting new chapter.
