A 16-year-old student from Berkeley Institute has started a 12-week work experience placement with Marsh and Guy Carpenter.

Cairi Albuoy was chosen for the placement because of his keen interest in the insurance and reinsurance industry. One day a week until mid-May, he will work half-days have the opportunity to learn first-hand how an international business operates and receive in-depth exposure to various aspects of the insurance industry.

He will have work experience at Marsh & McLennan Companies four businesses in Bermuda, which are Marsh Captive Solutions, Bowring Marsh, Guy Carpenter and The Schinnerer Group.

The placement is part of the Career Pathways Programme, a career-based training initiative between the Department of Education, Bermuda College, and industry partners, such as the Association of Bermuda International Companies and its member companies.

Chris Reeves, managing director of Marsh, and country corporate officer of Marsh & McLennan Companies, Bermuda, said: “We are committed to encouraging young Bermudians to consider insurance and reinsurance as potential career choices. We look forward to sharing our knowledge with Cairi.”

Tammisha R. Francis-Wainwright, Career Pathways co-ordinator at the Berkeley Institute, said: “We are grateful to Marsh and Guy Carpenter for their support of the Career Pathways programme, which enables our students to get invaluable insight into potential future careers. This is an exciting opportunity for Cairi to gain hands-on experience of what working life is like in an international business.”
