New recruits in Immigration


Pin It

From mature adults to some younger workers, 13 new Immigration Department recruits were welcomed into the ranks by top officials. This batch was selected from a pool of 321 applicants.

Acting Chief Officer in the Portfolio of Internal and External Affairs Eric Bush, speaking on behalf of Chief Officer Franz Manderson, said, “Government’s uniformed divisions are very special in their own right. While your logo – a shield – symbolises border protection, this goes hand-in-hand with good customer service.” While encouraging personal initiative, he added, “It’s your strength in numbers that will get you through any challenges.”

The group commences six months of intensive classroom work, as well as practical instruction and cross-training with other unformed agencies.

Acting Chief Immigration Officer Bruce Smith welcomed the 13 trainees on behalf of CIO Linda Evans, and encouraged positive attitudes and good study habits in their new working environment.

Also attending the opening session were Deputy Chief Officer Katherine Dinspel-Powell, Deputy CIOs Samantha Bennett (Administration) and Gary Wong (Enforcement); Acting Director of Boards and Work Permits Jeremy Scott and other senior representatives.
