The Department aims to set the standard as the nation’s Labour and Human Resources leader, through the promotion of decent work and securing labour market opportunities for Bahamians.

According to the Director of Labour, Mr. Howard Thompson Jr., the Department of Labour hosts initiatives like Labour on the Blocks 2.0 Job Fairs to “ fulfill its mission of facilitating stronger engagement between employers and the local workforce while promoting high levels ofemployment throughout the nation.”

On May 7th, 2022 the Department of Labour relaunched its Labour on the Blocks initiiative in the Centerville Community, the first of many communities who have successfully benefited from these employment opportunites.

In recent years, the Department of Labour’s Public Employment Services Unit has assisted thousands of Bahamians with obtaining gainful employment through its job fairs and Labour on the Blocks initiatives. This year, the Department aims to expand these efforts into more local communities so that more Bahamians can have access to available job opportunties.

At present, about 200 individuals have pre-registered for the job fair within the Sea Breeze Community. For more information, contact the Department of Labour at 242-302-2550, or follow the Department’s social media pages for updates.
