London Office offering internship

Calyx Tucker

An internship in the Government of Bermuda London Office will be available to a Bermudian postgraduate student living in the city.

The move is an extension of a programme launched last year by the London Office, in conjunction with the Department of Workforce Development.

The internship last year was awarded to Calyx Tucker, a former law student.

Judy Teart of the Department of Workforce Development stated: “We are pleased that Calyx has had a successful internship in the London Office.

“There is tremendous synergy between her intern position and her studies. In the coming weeks, we will announce a new internship placement opportunity in London for postgraduate students living in London.”

Speaking about her work at the London Office, Ms Tucker stated: “From day one of the internship, no two days have ever been the same, with work ranging from assisting in consular matters to attending ministerial conferences.

“I first joined the office on the Monday after the Brexit referendum in the UK, and immediately observed resulting discussions as it relates to the Overseas Territories.

“The highlight of my experience was preparing for and attending the Joint Ministerial Council, the highest political forum between Governments of the British Overseas Territories and the United Kingdom.

“This internship has offered me a unique insight into the world of international relations and policy. It is an exciting opportunity to hone both hard and soft skills while doing work that is interesting and meaningful.”

Director and UK representative, Kimberley Durrant, stated: “Calyx Tucker is a passionate young Bermudian who deserved the opportunity to gain insightful exposure into the Government’s international engagement arena.

“The internship is an opportunity for any Bermudian graduate currently living in the UK to gain experience by working in partnership with the UK Government, EU Commission, UK Diplomatic Corp, UK Parliament and Governments of the Overseas Territories.

“The aim is to prepare our students for the workforce, by exposing them to the world of diplomacy and international policy. This is what the London Office is here for.”
