HSM’s 2023-24 Internship Programme Nearing Completion

The HSM Group is proud to continue its internship programme in partnership with the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) by offering 13 placements for the 2023/24 academic year.

As part of the CIFEC curriculum, the internship began in October 2023 and concludes in April 2024. Each student attends work twice a week during school hours and has been carefully paired with a lawyer or expert at HSM.

HSM’s team of interns include: Robert Chung, Janiya Jackson, Javari Pearson, Omari Powell, Eva Bothwell, Aquinle ‘Bria’ Missick, Jancarlos Hernandez, Korey Berry, Angelie Bodden, Jazmynn McCoy, Cliff Weeks Jr., Alanee Morgan and Pertrice Ambersley.

The HSM Group is a full-service law firm and corporate services provider, which offers students the ability to gain experiences across a wide range of practices including property, family, debt collection, intellectual property, corporate services and even areas outside of law, such as marketing and finance.

Some students have commented on their time at HSM:

“This experience allows us to have a peek of work life in the future. It also builds practical job skills for one’s future career. This internship has helped me to learn and enhance my skills in the workplace,” shares Pertrice Ambersley.

“I have formed connections and met a lot of welcoming people. I have also learned about a day in the life of an intellectual property assistant. Working in this field helps you develop your communication skills,” shares Janiya Jackson.

“My time here has been amazing. I am learning new things and the people here are so patient as well as fun. The work is also challenging so I am never bored. I feel prepared for the future and have a better idea of what I want to do,” shares Javari Pearson.

HSM Managing Partner, Huw Moses OBE shares: “Their experiences showcase why internship programmes are so important. HSM is committed to providing a foundation for young adults to develop their careers in the Cayman Islands.”

As the programme nears competition, students may have the opportunity to attain a summer work placement. In 2023, three summer students were offered full-time positions at HSM IP.

HSM has supported the CIFEC Internship Programme since 2012 and also offers sponsorship opportunities for further education. HSM employs several CIFEC graduates full-time.
