The Policy and Economic Development Unit is responsible for the development of a long term, evidence based labour force strategy which supports economic development of the Falkland Islands.

Balissa Greene was the Labour Force Development Specialist working within Policy and Economic Development Unit from 2018-2020.

The primary role of the labour force development specialist was to understand how the Falkland Islands can attract and retain skilled labour to the island.  This entails understanding the global labour shortage push and pull factors, providing an analysis of the structures and processes within the Falkland Islands that both inhibit and support recruitment and development of labour and recommending initiatives that will support systematic growth and development.The labour force development specialist worked alongside the public and private sector.

The Directorate also facilitates the meetings of the Skills Assessment Council, which aims to assess and review current and future skill requirements for the Islands. It is intended to provide a formal and independent mechanism to identify labour, skills and training needs across the Islands and to ensure a proactive response to these needs through the immigration system, training provision and other routes. The Labour Development Specialist did Chair this Council to provide further support and knowledge to the group.
