Google Job-Seekers Look Offshore

GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS--(Marketwire - July 14, 2008) - The Internet is playing a key role in making jobs in the Cayman Islands more accessible to global job-seekers, according to new research by specialist agency CML Offshore Recruitment.

Increasing use of the Internet is helping recruitment agencies and employers to reach potential employees around the world -- many of whom would have had no previous access to these opportunities.

Offshore jurisdictions such as Bermuda and the Cayman Islands are amongst the key beneficiaries of the increased global accessibility and it is helping to attract large numbers of high-quality professionals to the islands.

Recent Google rankings show an annual average of almost 400,000 searches for keywords 'Caribbean jobs,' whilst Cayman job-related keywords account for more than 100,000 searches per year.

Popular Cayman-related searches include 'Cayman Jobs' and 'Cayman Island Jobs'

CML has been recruiting for the offshore financial services industry since 2003, specialising in the provision of accountants, lawyers and IT staff.

And CEO Steve McIntosh is in no doubt about the value of the Internet to global recruitment.

He said: "We have been compiling figures on our website usage since 2005 and there is a direct correlation between the increasing use of the Internet and the number and quality of candidates we attract.

"Without the Internet it would be much more difficult -- and expensive -- to attract top candidates to places like the Cayman Islands.

"But now that information on opportunities is so readily accessible, more and more people are seeing the benefits of working offshore and it has created and incredibly competitive market, amongst both employers and candidates."
