Record number of Biltir summer interns
A record number of Bermudian students are taking part in a summer intern programme with companies belonging to Bermuda International Long Term Insurers and Reinsurers.
Twenty six students, including two based in the Cayman Islands, are joining Biltir companies for ten weeks of paid work throughout the summer to learn about all aspects of the life insurance and reinsurance industries. They will gain experience in a variety of potential careers, including accounting, legal, actuarial, claims, technology and investment.
“We are delighted to welcome the largest number of students yet to the Biltir internship programme,” Biltir chair Sylvia Oliveira said.
“One of Biltir’s key priorities is to create jobs for Bermudians, and we hope that many of these talented young Bermudians will join Biltir companies for an exciting and fulfilling career.”
Biltir launched in June 2011 with five members. The association now represents 68 on-island life re/insurance and supporting service businesses. Member companies employ more than 600 people locally.
