CG BritCay is proud to announce the launch of its highly anticipated Summer Internship Programme earlier this summer. Building upon the success of previous years, this year’s programme emphasizes the robustness of the internship experience, highlighting Coralisle Group’s (CG) commitment to nurturing talent and giving back to the community.

Under the guidance of CG professionals, selected students have embarked on an eight-week programme, gaining invaluable professional skills, industry knowledge, and exploring potential career paths. The programme has been designed to align with career interests of the interns, ensuring a meaningful and relevant experience. The CG summer internship programme is currently running in Bermuda, Cayman, The Bahamas, and this year, has debuted in Barbados with the inclusion of CG United to the Coralisle Group of Companies.

One of the notable aspects of the programme is the Intern’s Community Day, where all the interns in all participating islands actively volunteer, showcasing CG‘s dedication to making a positive impact within the communities in which we live and work. This initiative demonstrates the company’s people-first approach and its commitment to fostering local talent and strengthening community connections.

This year, in Cayman, the CG BritCay interns were able to volunteer with Meals on Wheels delivering much needed lunches. The charity provides free, hot, nutritious meals to seniors, the homebound and the disabled throughout the Cayman Islands, Monday to Friday, 52 weeks of the year.

Naz Farrow, CG’s Chief Executive Officer, expressed her enthusiasm for the internships stating, “The CG Summer Internship Programme offers exceptional opportunities for professional growth and development, enabling interns to explore potential career paths within the company while receiving a competitive compensation package.”

Farrow added, “This programme not only provides insights into the insurance industry, but also nurtures a collegial spirit among interns, fostering a supportive environment through our experienced CG professionals. As a company, these internships represent our commitment to investing in the future by harnessing the potential of our local young talent and strengthening our ties with the communities we serve.”

The internship programme encompasses a diverse range of activities, including a group project, team-building exercises, and community service days. Interns will also attend information sessions led by CG managers, covering essential topics such as cyber security, regulatory compliance, legal affairs, investing and managing personal finances, ESG, and personal career and brand development.

The selected interns for the CG BritCay office are Chancey Gordon, Kaylee Challenger, Shante Reid, and Taija McRae. Additionally, 18 more students have been chosen for the programme in CG’s other jurisdictions, Bermuda, Barbados, and The Bahamas.

The rigorous selection process involved an in-depth assessment of applications and interviews with numerous candidates. Successful interns were chosen based on their academic achievements, extracurricular involvement, career aspirations, and alignment with CG’s core values.

The CG Summer Internship Programme began on June 26th and will end in August. For more information about the CG Summer Internship Programme and other initiatives by CG BritCay, please contact Audrey Prendergast at hr_manager_ky@cgcoralisle.com.
