Default Wanting to move to Barbados

Hi there,
Firstly, I'm sorry to the forum if my question has been asked before elsewhere - I would be very grateful if someone could point me to any useful sites/threads if they exist and are recent.

My wife, son (1year) and I are looking to move to Barbados. My wife spent a fair bit of her young childhood there (Winnifreds) and, after spending 7 years in Cayman before coming to the UK, we are now dying to move back to the Caribbean... the real Caribbean if you know what I mean.

I work in Financial Services (Corporate and Trust) but am struggling to find work/recruiters etc which leads me to think it's very quiet over there (hopefully I'm just looking in the wrong place). I would really appreciate if any kind folk would be able to assist us us with any tips/websites, work permit requirements, what salary a small (average, light drinkers, non-smokers, quiet sports and watersports loving) family might need to live on. I am used to Cayman/Bermuda cost of living but haven't seen much to go on for Barbados, despite extensive research on the net.

Any help would be super appreciated - happy to give more info if needed.

I should probably say that I'm under no illusion that getting work will not be easy. Bermuda is impossible and Cayman is tricky but do-able if you have contacts. How does it work in Barbados?
