The Government of the Virgin Islands regularly seeks qualified individuals to fill positions throughout the Public Service. In addition to competitive salaries, employees of the Government receive a generous benefits package, opportunities for training and development, and a stable, rewarding career. Most Public Service jobs are filled by citizens of the British Virgin Islands. In 2004 we launched BVI Quest, a programme aimed at recruiting Virgin Islanders residing abroad to return home for a career in the Public Service. Foreign nationals are recruited to posts in certain technical and specialist fields for fixed-term contracts when no qualified Virgin Islanders has been identified.

The Hiring Process

Existing vacancies are published in newspapers in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and throughout the Caribbean. We also post new vacancies on this website every week. Each vacancy notice will specify the post, department, duties, minimum requirement, and salary range for the post, as well as the closing date for applications.

Completed applications, together with all the necessary supporting documents, should be mailed or delivered to the Department of Human Resources at the address below no later than the closing date printed on the vacancy notice. If you are sending your application from overseas, we recommend using a commercial courier service to ensure it arrives on time. An email will be sent acknowledging the receipt of your application.

All complete applications will be forwarded to the respective Department´s human resource manager, who will review the applications and interview candidates. Once the Department has determines its choice for the position, this recommendation is forwarded to the Public Service Commission (PSC) via the Department of Human Resources. (For more on the Public Service Commission, visit the Who We Are page of this website). Candidates may be asked to come before the PSC for a second interview. The PSC then forwards the applications, together with its own recommendation for the post, to the Governor, who makes the final hiring decisions.

Unsuccessful applications will receive an email or letter informing them that they have not been chosen for the post.
