Labour Officials to Strengthen Employment Unit
February 28, 2017

Officials from the Department of Labour here in St. Kitts and Nevis are exploring changes to its Employment Services Unit to enhance its functionality in matching persons with the jobs that best suit their skills, and improving the prospects for success once they join the labour pool.

 The ideas were generated after participating in a five-day meeting entitled “Technical Workshop on Employment Services and Activation Policies” held in St. Maarten from February 13 to 17.

St. Kitts and Nevis was represented by Chief Labour Officer in Nevis ,Gary Liburd, Labour Officer – St. Kitts, Jacqueline Chiverton, and Labour Officer and Head of the Employment Services Unit – St. Kitts, Lucinda Francis.


The participants reviewed the role and the core functions of public employment services; explored guiding principles and logistical elements to consider when setting up an employment center; and covered basic competencies required of employment center staff.

The local team will work together to form proposals that will be submitted to the Labour Commissioner for action.

The conference was organized by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in collaboration with the Government of St. Maarten.
