Ballast Nedam International Projects has successfully held its first job fair on Sint Maarten

Ballast Nedam International Projects B.V. looks back on a successful job fair for the upcoming open positions required to execute the renovation works of the terminal for the Princess Juliana International Airport. More than 150 interested people visited the event.

The fair has been held on 18th of December 2021, in close cooperation with the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development & Labor (VSA) and the National Institute for Professional Advancement (NIPA). More than hundred fifty interested Sint Maarten citizens, job seekers and companies showed their interest and willingness to become part of this project on St. Maarten.

Job opportunities and training

Besides the job fair visitors, Ballast Nedam received many more applications through email. The evaluation of CV’s and job interviews are still ongoing while the priority remains on creation of job opportunities for the local labor market in Sint Maarten.

In addition, Ballast Nedam is in collaboration with the National Institute for Professional Advancement to investigate training opportunities for unskilled job seekers on the local market in Sint Maarten to match the quality expectations required for the execution of the Princess Juliana International Airport Works.

About the St. Maarten project

On the Caribbean island of St. Maarten, Ballast Nedam International Projects is building a completely renovated terminal for the Princes Juliana International Airport. This new terminal will enable the island to welcome and transport its passengers according to the latest standards.

This renovation is urgently needed, as in 2017 Hurricane Irma caused severe damage throughout the island and the airport terminal in particular. Ballast Nedam International Projects is renovating the entire airport terminal, including the facade, windows, check-in hall, check-in counters, security areas, departure gates, arrival hall, business lounge, offices and installations. Ultimately, the terminal will have a modern look with the latest techniques.
