Jamaican-born Dayner Clarke-Azzellino, is one of the first beneficiaries of the free movement of labour under the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME). Clarke-Azzellino is now the Marketing Manager at the Trinidad and Tobago-based company, CL Permanent.
The Jamaican national moved to the twin-island about a year ago and described the process of acquiring the Skills Certificate very easy. The certificate allows CARICOM nationals to work in member states without a work permit.
Under the Caribbean Community Free Movement of Skilled Persons Act, Clarke-Azzellino, who is a University graduate and skilled professional, falls into one of the qualified categories for free movement.
She however had to apply for a Skills Certificate, which replaces the work permit as the document, which allows for employment outside of one's home country.
