In recent years our IT recruitment team here at CML have observed extensive growth in the IT industry in the Cayman Islands, Bermuda & the British Virgin Islands. As the financial and legal industries grow, so do in-house IT teams and consultancies.
We cannot recommend it enough to our experienced candidates to step outside their comfort zones and try something new and in some cases, somewhere new! But how exactly do you go about the process of finding your dream job offshore?
1. What IT Experience Do You Need?
One of the first steps when deciding if relocating offshore is the right step for your career is to reflect on if your skills and qualifications align with the demand offshore.

2. Research Life Offshore
If your area of expertise aligns with the above and you have the requisite qualifications in your field, the next step is doing some background research on the different offshore jurisdictions and if you will be happy there. It’s a big step to decide to make a career change and an even bigger step to do so in a new location.
