The Government is announcing its decision to undertake a National Community Enhancement Project (NICE) 2017. The project will provide opportunities for the unemployed to work for up to two weeks before Christmas and one week after by enhancing the physical environment for the benefit of the community.

The project will cover repairs and maintenance, gardening, cleaning parks, beaches, beach access and roadside verges. A similar project will also be undertaken in the Sister Islands under the supervision of District Administration.

The dates of the programme are from Monday, 4 December – Friday, 15 December 2017 and from Monday, 8 January – Friday, 12 January 2018.

The project is only open to unemployed Caymanians, 18 years and older, and unemployed spouses of Caymanians who have the right to work.

Rigorous vetting will take place to ensure that only those who are eligible are accepted into the programme.

Contracted workers will be paid $10 per hour, foremen will receive $12 per hour.

Application forms can be picked up at all district libraries in Grand Cayman, as well as from District MLA Offices, the Needs Assessment Unit, the National Workforce Development Agency and at the Government Administration Building’s reception area in George Town.

Mandatory registration and training will take place at the Lions Centre on Tuesday, 28 November 2017 at 9 a.m. Applicants will need to bring a completed application form and supporting documentation with them to prove immigration status on registration day.
