The Utility Regulation and Competition Office (OfReg) is pleased to announce the addition of intern Mr. Romaine Knight as part of a programme to provide young Caymanians with an opportunity to gain valuable technical experience, learn new techniques as they transition into their career path, and "bring to life" what they have learnt at school.
Romaine started his internship in November 2020 after showing a keen interest in joining the Fuels Inspectorate Division at OfReg. Mr. Duke Munroe the Chief Fuels Inspector and Director, Fuels Market who has been integrally involved in internship and mentoring programmes over the last few years, indicated how delighted he was for the opportunity to positively influence another young Caymanian who has great potential. “Romaine is not a typical intern, and having recognised his penchant for learning and mastery, we could not miss the opportunity to bolster his career prospects. We simply did what was right here at OfReg – enrolled him into what promises to be a comprehensive, mutually beneficial and rewarding internship program.”
Mr. Malike Cummings, OfReg’s CEO added, "We're driven by the desire to make a difference for all of our interns by transforming the early career landscape. We are committed to giving Cayman's youth a chance to test and apply their knowledge in a real business context. Through this internship, Romaine will build relationships, gain exposure and regulatory experience in a unique environment, only OfReg can offer and which perhaps, may shape his future career."
Romaine said he has always been interested in being involved in the work that OfReg does since it was the Petroleum Inspectorate. “I have been involved in some of the fuel related work that OfReg oversees, for example meter calibrations, but I’ve always wanted to join the team after gaining more information on what OfReg is about and also the distinguished work that is done in the sector. I plan to further my studies in this area and will use the internship opportunity to learn as much from the Chief Fuels Inspector and his team as I can.”
At OfReg, we value new ideas, curiosity and collaboration. As an intern, Romaine will not only be pursuing personal and professional growth, but he will also be part of our development as an organisation. The fresh perspectives he brings will help us to fine-tune how to better meet the needs of our customers, stakeholders and employees.
