The Cayman Islands are an autonomous British Overseas Territory in the Western Caribbean Sea. The islands were believed to have been discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1503 and were originally called Las Tortugas, given the high number of turtles on the island. In subsequent years they became known as the Caymans given the presence of Caiman’s, a small breed of crocodile, found there.
There are three islands which form the territory of the Cayman Islands and they are Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac Little Cayman. The capital of Georgetown is located on the largest island of Grand Cayman.
The climate in Cayman is very appealing with average Winter temperatures between 23 Degrees and 30 degrees Celsius and Summer temperatures of 26 and 35 Degrees Celsius. The islands are prone to tropical cyclones that form during Atlantic hurricane season which runs from June to November. The warm temperatures and beautiful beaches allow for a very relaxing and outdoor lifestyle. Scuba diving and sailing are two of the most popular pastimes on the islands.
Nowadays the Cayman Islands are a large Financial Services hub known for investment funds, banking, insurance and other Financial Services and products. The success of Cayman as a Finance centre is down to political and economy stability coupled with a sound regulatory regime in a tax neutral environment.

” Happy to write a review for Shane, who sorted jobs for both my girlfriend and I (we relocated from Dublin to Cayman Islands). One thing consistent throughout was Shane acting in our best interests as opposed to his own, something extremely unique in the Irish recruitment industry. He will give you balanced opinion and let you make up your own mind. We were happy to be his first Cayman relocation placements and I imagine we will be the first of many. We are now very well settled into life in the Cayman Islands and we still maintain a friendship with Shane. “
