    Was Sadlier’s position advertised in the newspaper? Was the position advertised internally in CIMA?

    How long was the position vacant before she took the post? Were any Caymanians mentored or guided in the right direction to gain the experience and education required for the job to qualify that work internally in CIMA?

    There should not be any work permit holders in CIMA unless it is to train the other staff.

    Congrats to JudiAnne.

    I am sure they are great people, but Cayman doesn’t really do supervision and compliance does it.

    Does Sadlier have a Caymanian understudy to replace her? Why is a permit holder being promoted in CIMA?

    I thought the purpose of a work permit is to fill a position that cannot be filled by a local and when a permit holder in put in the position a Caymanian is sufficiently trained up on in intensive basist to eventually fill the position.

      Agreed – this woman should be on a one year contract which she has Caymanian chief analysts that she is trying up for progression.

      Govt just sent out a survey regarding immigration. Personally I think this promotion is exactly why Caymanians are upset. It doesn’t matter whether she deserved it or not. It matters that she is on a work permit and should not expect that she can remain in Cayman indefinitely.

      It really irks that permit holders believe that they can remain without leave in Cayman just because they are an expat. Caymanians should have rights and priorities. Similar to Bermuda and Bahamas.

        “It doesn’t matter whether she deserved it or not.” It matters if the person is up to the job or not. Caymanization is a very dangerous policy if it means passports are more importantly than ability.

          Every country should take care of their own. Trump was voted in because of the immigration that got out of handand immigrants feeling they have more rights than citizens. Brexit similar. Some call it racist. It is truly about nationalism.

          A local can do the job just the same as any expat. If there is a gap in training, then the gap should be filled. If all the other senior positions are filled by Caymanians, then why is it really necessary to have this position filled by a permit holder. If it is an inability to find a Caymanian at this point in time, ensure that there is a training procedure to ensure a Caymanian will replace her.

          I really do not think this should be limited to CIMA. This should be all jobs in Cayman. Caymanians should not be treated as second class citizens in their own country.
