HSM Welcomes 16 Students to Internship Programme

The HSM Group is excited to once again offer a legal internship for the 2018/19 academic year in partnership with the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC). This year marks their largest group with 16 placements.

The students were recruited at the CIFEC Career Fair which took place in September 2018. As part of the CIFEC curriculum, each student attends work twice a week during school hours.

HSM’s internship programme begins October 2018 and runs until April 2019. The students have been paired with a mentor and will gain experience in areas such as immigration, corporate services, debt collection, intellectual property and even areas outside of law, such as finance and marketing.

Joining the team are: Kymani Rose, Jada Dixon, Iesha McIntosh, Paula Brown, Oneila Ewers, Shante Ramoon, Jordyn Thompson, Amelia Lamie, Abigail Campbell, Shaquana Welcome, Chadrick Thomas, Shantel Miller, Yanina Montero, Nia Carter, Izarah Brown and Chelsea Frederick.

Upon completion of this programme, some students may have the opportunity to return to HSM for a summer placement during normal office hours. If a student has proven a match for an open position with the company, they may be offered a fulltime job. HSM currently employs six CIFEC graduates fulltime.

“We are passionate about sharing our expertise to Cayman’s next generation of leaders and are proud to be able to offer more opportunities this year,” shares HSM Managing Partner, Huw Moses OBE. “It is inspiring for us to watch these students learn and grow professionally.”

HSM has worked with the CIFEC progamme since their inception in 2012. The firm’s continued involvement in the CIFEC internship showcases their unwavering commitment to the local community by providing work experience opportunities to ambitious young professionals.
