Hamilton Re opens 2020 intern programme
Hamilton Re is inviting applications from students entering their junior year of college who are interested in participating in Hamilton Re’s intern programme during the summer of 2019.
Reporting into the catastrophe modelling team, the internship programme provides an opportunity for two undergraduate students to spend eight to 10 weeks with Hamilton Re.
“This year’s internship marks the fourth year of this successful initiative,” said Susan Smith, vice president, catastrophe modelling, who oversees the programme. “By recruiting local students, we aim to increase the pool of qualified Bermudians entering the insurance and reinsurance industry. We combine on-the-job learning and formal development so that students can gain work experience and transferable skills to help them make future career decisions.
“Through short rotations in several of Hamilton Re’s departments, students are exposed to various aspects of our business. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see first-hand the many different career options that the insurance and reinsurance industry offers.”
Tomisha Goater and Amon Wedderburn participated in last year’s intern programme. The two students—from the University of Florida and St. John’s University, respectively— rotated through the company’s cross-functional teams. Goater is now a fulltime Hamilton Re employee; Wedderburn is in his junior year and plans to pursue a career in the industry.
