Bermuda International Long Term Insurers and Reinsurers has launched an internship programme for Bermudian college students.
The ten interns will take part in Biltirs ten-week programme, which runs from June 11 until August 17. Each of the successful applicants has been placed with a Biltir member company and will receive hands-on exposure and insight into the life reinsurance sector.
The interns selected for the programme are:
Nicolas Araujo Legal & General Re
Cyana Burgess Global Atlantic Re
Tahirah Cross Sun Life Assurance
Mauriq Hill Hannover Life Re
Shane Hollis Athene Life Re
Evin Mosley Athene Life Re
Quinnae Outerbridge Athene Life Re
Imani Smith Sun Life Assurance
Jalen Symonds-Bean Wilton Re Bermuda
Kayla Virgil-Darrell Somerset Re
The internship opportunities were listed on Biltirs website and the successful applicants were vetted, interviewed and selected by their host company.
As part of their experience, the interns will take part in a series of networking and educational events, including lunch and learn sessions at each of the participating companies. In these sessions they will discuss the life re/insurance sector and its products, the nature and professional opportunities arising from the Bermuda life re/insurance industry and hear from young professionals in the field.
Sylvia Oliveira, director of Biltir, said: We are delighted to be launching a summer internship programme for college students. We hope that more young Bermudians will consider the life sector when they graduate, and this programme will expose the participants to the industry.
This is an incredible opportunity for these young people to gain first-hand experience of the life reinsurance sector and to make important professional connections.
