Biltir opens applications for summer interns
The Bermuda International Long Term Insurers and Reinsurers organisation is encouraging young Bermudians who are interested in a career in the life and annuities industry to apply for its summer internship programme.
Twelve companies are running the ten-week intern programmes from June 13 to August 19.
The internships, which are paid, cover a range of careers, including underwriting, actuarial, finance, legal, client management and IT.
They are open to Bermudian university or college students who are studying actuarial science, accounting, investments, finance or law.
Last year, a record number of 26 Bermudians took part in the programme.
“Bermuda has a thriving life and annuities sector and our member companies can offer young Bermudians a wide range of interesting opportunities,” said Biltir executive director Christine Patton.
“One of Biltir’s roles is to help develop the next generation of life business talent here in Bermuda and I would encourage those who are interested to take the first step by applying for an internship with one of our member companies.”
The Biltir companies taking part are Athora, Argus, Athene, Global Atlantic Re, Hannover Re, Kuvare, Legal & General, Somerset Reinsurance, Sun Life International, Resolution Re, Wilton Re, and Willis Towers Watson.
Biltir represents 73 annuity, life insurance and reinsurance businesses and servicing companies in Bermuda who provide life and annuity products and employ more than 600 people on the island.
