Living and Working in Cayman

The Cayman Islands is a British Overseas Territory, made up of three islands - Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman.

The Cayman Islands are in the western Caribbean, about 150 miles south of Cuba, 460 miles south of Miami, Florida, and 167 miles northwest of Jamaica. The climate is tropical, with temperatures ranging from 27 degrees in winter to 31 degrees in the summer.

The population is 60,413 of which almost 56.7% are Caymanian and the islands are multicultural, with more than 135 nationalities represented.

The key pillars of the Cayman Islands' economy, each accounting for approximately 50% of the Cayman Islands’ GDP, are financial services and tourism. There are no income, inheritance, sales, corporation, capital gains or withholding taxes in the Cayman Islands and Cayman is currently the world’s fifth largest financial centre.

The Cayman Islands has excellent schools (with a choice of the British or the American school systems), from kindergarten through to university level. There are over 4,500 students in the public school system and over 2,500 students in private schools. A broad range of medical services are available on Grand Cayman and health insurance is required by law.

Ogier has active sports and social committees through which our staff get involved in a wide range of activities.

Whether an avid diver or diner, there are many ways to relax in Cayman after a day at the office. Not only is Cayman considered a world-class scuba diving destination, there are many cultural activities in addition to a world-class selection of restaurants.

The beauty of the beaches in Cayman is surpassed only by the beauty and warmth of the people making it one of the more desirable places to live.
