Hamilton Re opens door for 2019 interns
Interns start the summer at Hamilton Re
Hamilton Re has announced that its 2018 summer interns, Tomisha Goater and Amon Wedderburn, have completed a ten-week programme that offered insight into the company.
From the start of June, Goater and Wedderburn have rotated through the cross-functional teams at Hamilton Re, spending time in catastrophe modelling, actuarial science, business intelligence, and direct and facultative reinsurance.
Susan Smith, VP catastrophe modelling and coordinator of Hamilton Re’s internship programme, said that both students displayed an impressive aptitude for efficiency throughout their time at Hamilton Re, which culminated in a final project on workplace organisation and a presentation to chief executive officer Kathleen Reardon and other company executives.
This is the third year that Hamilton Re has offered its internship programme. The initiative is a part of Hamilton’s ongoing commitment to attract Bermudians to the insurance and reinsurance industry. This summer was Goater’s second Hamilton internship.
“Since interning with Hamilton last summer, I have seen many things become more efficient, which shows that everyone is working towards the mission,” said Goater. “With the rotational programme, we are able to see more of the departments. The best part about the programme is that we are given hands-on work that challenges us.”
“To me, Hamilton Re is always one step ahead when it comes to technology and innovation,” said Wedderburn. “The internship definitely presents challenges on a day-to-day basis that encourage you to live the Hamilton first principles and ‘Be More.’
“In addition to this, Hamilton has developed a diversity and inclusion platform that pushes the office to have an even more socially comfortable environment.”
