The Society supports a summer internship programme for Bermudian undergraduate and postgraduate students studying in the UK, which provides Bermudian students with an invaluable opportunity to experience the world of high finance in London and allow them to draw upon the wide range of business expertise from within the Society’s Committee of Management and broader membership base – particularly insurance, reinsurance and financial services. It also enables UK firms to identify potential candidates for their graduate recruitment schemes.
