Hi Bassem Safwat,
Happy that you are being considered for employment in our country and, if you are successful in your endeavors, then we are happy to have you here and wish you all the best as you experience our island paradise.
For the privacy and protection of our expatriates monetary figures are not quoted here but as you read you will have a basic understanding of how operations in your field of choice are handled.
The telecommunication giants in Jamaica have a standard by which they are governed as it relates to the relocation of expatriates who they have invited to be a part of their workforce.
These giants, depending on the level at which the expatriates come, are responsible for finding lodging, company vehicle as a means of transportation, household help and take care of
the basic amenities.
However, expatriates are able to negotiate with the management team and arrive at what they term amicable enough for them to make the best of their stay both in Jamaica and with the company.
Expatriates from neighbouring countries such as the Caribbean nations, United States, Canada and the United Kingdom would have been exposed to lifestyles similar to that of Jamaicans and are better able to navigate their way through the island.
It may, however, be more tedious on persons from further afield.
The fact that there is a standard by which these telecommunication giants are governed, they have the basic salary package worked out to fit the entry levels of the expatriates who are being considered for employment in their companies.
This means that accommodation would be selected with the expatriate’s taste, interest and easy access to recreational sites and other basic amenities so deemed in the contract, all of which would be discussed with all concerned parties before signing off on the contract.
