The Cayman Enterprise City (CEC) ‘Summer in the City’ internship programme is open to Caymanians and residents of the Cayman Islands between the ages of 18-25 and lasts for one to two months during the summer. Every year we aim to place 20+ young people in internships with CEC and throughout Cayman's three special economic zones which include, Cayman Tech City, Cayman Maritime & Aviation City, and Cayman Commodities & Derivatives City. Areas of placement include:
- Internet Technology
- Science & Technology
- Commodities & Derivatives
- Maritime & Aviation Services
- Client Services & Business Operations
- Marketing & Communications
- Urban Planning & Development
Internship placements offer students hands-on experience and access to knowledge-based career paths in a professional work environment. All students who apply to the programme are invited to attend a special networking event. The event provides students with the opportunity to meet innovative entrepreneurs and business leaders from Cayman and around the globe and practice their networking skills.
CEC is committed to helping Caymanian students and job-seekers position themselves for new and innovative careers that are currently being created amongst the 225 companies now set up within Cayman’s special economic zones. Some internships have successfully led to full-time job placements with special economic zone companies.
To participate, students will be asked complete a 20-25 minute online application. Once a match has been made, successful candidates will be invited to come in for an interview with CEC and/or a zone organisation(s). Please note that answers submitted in the online application will be shared with CEC zone companies. We will do our very best to match everyone who applies but cannot guarantee that all applicants and interviews will be successful.
The deadline to apply to the 2018 Summer in the City internships programme has now passed. For more information about the 2019 programme and to be added to the Enterprise Cayman mailing list please email Kaitlyn Elphinstone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
