CML Offshore Recruitment has awarded an internship to young Caymanian Kimberly Smith, as part of its commitment to encourage local talent and promote financial service careers in the Caribbean.
Miss Smith will be involved in all facets of CML’s business, spending time in each department, from administration to marketing and recruitment, with a view to giving her a full understanding of the company and the financial services industry.
Born in Florida, but was raised in the Cayman Islands as her family has been on island since the 1960s, Miss Smith is currently studying for a Bachelors of Commerce at Dalhousie University, where she is majoring in International Business with potential minors in Accounting and Economics.
Miss Smith is currently working with the CML legal team on a number of research projects and will soon move to the marketing team where she will assist in the production of promotional videos and advertisements. The aim is to further boost the reputations of both CML and the Cayman Islands in the world of offshore financial services.
‘CML is a small office with big potential, high energy and friendly faces so I enjoy my role and the variety of projects I have ahead of me’, said Miss Smith. ‘I hope to grow my communication and people skills by conversing with the many candidates who wish to relocate to Cayman and our other locations.
‘As time progresses I will develop an understanding of which tasks are essential for each department, and how they are run efficiently and effectively. Eventually I hope to work in the financial services sector for a large international firm. Who knows what the future holds?’
Colin Doylend, marketing and PR manager for CML, said: ‘Kimberly is a bright and inspiring young Caymanian. She has fitted in with the team wonderfully and shows lots of promise.’
