(Coronavirus Pandemic)

Notice Date: 30th March 2020

The health and safety of our staff and contractors are of paramount importance. As such all ITC staff have been advised to work from home for the next 30 days and avoid all non-essential travel. This may reduce accessibility of staff via phone but, pending individual internet issues, most trade commissioners should be accessible via email.

The Council’s IT infrastructure systems are redundant and we use tried and tested collaborative tools that allow full remote working for all staff and contractors. As we use an IP-based phone system, all of our contact details will remain the same.

All webinars, conferences and trade missions are temporarily paused pending the end of the 30 day home quarantine period. The Trade Mission to Malta, Trade Mission to Estonia and Trade Mission to Finland are being re-scheduled for August 2020. Pending any major changes in the current Pandemic situation, Trade Commissioners should update attendees within the next 45 days.

All accounting functions and non-trade-related functions are temporarily paused for the 30 day home quarantine period.

The Council recommends all businesses follow the WHO guidelines which give some useful practical advice for workplaces.

Please stay at home if possible and stay safe!
