A delegation from the Royal Navy is currently in St Vincent and the Grenadines on a recruitment drive and several young persons are expected to be recruited.
In a small ceremony at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Conference Room on Monday March 25th, 2019, Minister of Foreign Affairs Sir Louis Straker welcomed the delegation, noting it was exciting to have them here as many young people have shown an interest in entering the service of the Royal Navy.
Sir Louis said the recruitment is of mutual benefit to both St Vincent and the Grenadines and the United Kingdom as it provides young people with opportunities for professional advancement and personal development.
The Foreign Affairs Minister also encouraged the delegation to visit the many sites of the country and enjoy the Vincentian hospitality.
St Vincent and the Grenadines’ High Commission to the United Kingdom, His Excellency Cenio Lewis, expressed thanks that another recruitment request was accepted and noted that this gives young Vincentians an opportunity for employment and building their existing skills.
Head of the Recruitment Team, William Adams said the Royal Navy was happy to be in the country.
He noted that the Royal Navy is boosting recruitment in the Commonwealth a process which he says brings varying skills to the Royal Navy.
The team will be here for the next two weeks.
