The General Information for Employers and Employees section on the back of your work permit states: “Employees may not accept alternative employment in Bermuda without the permission of the Immigration Department.”
The Department of Immigration’s work permit policy states: “Normally, permission from the Immigration Department will not be given during the first two years of the permit holder’s employment without a letter of release from the current employer.”
Therefore, before applying for any open position at Butterfield, please check your work permit status and provide a letter of release.
The letter confirms implied permission from the Department of Immigration for you to seek alternative employment in Bermuda.
Butterfield wishes you all the best with your career pursuits.
