OBS internship opens doors to accounting

An interest in accounting has allowed one lucky student to experience the financial industry first hand.

dms affiliate Offshore Business Solutions Ltd., a service provider for investment managers, is continuing its commitment to education by offering a summer internship to a local student interested in the financial industry.

John Gray High School student, Chevis Dilbert, has been gaining hands-on experience in the financial industry as an OBS intern. The year 12 student, who has a keen interest in accounting, plans to further his studies on this subject in Canada upon graduation from high school.

‘I have enjoyed my time at OBS,’ said Chevis. ‘There was a lot to take in at first, but I have learned much about the offshore industry since the beginning of my internship. I plan to pursue a career in finance and I am looking forward to applying the knowledge that I have gained here to my studies.’

Over the course of his internship, Chevis has worked alongside key employees at OBS, learning about and assisting with several of the business’ primary functions including finance reconciliation, corporate management, database management and financial statement reviews.

‘OBS has enjoyed having Chevis on board this summer,’ remarked OBS Client Accountant Angela Nightingale.

‘dms has always focused on supporting local education, and we have worked with many students at encouraging their future career aspirations. In addition to OBS, Chevis has had the opportunity to learn about other dms subsidiary and affiliate companies within dms House. He is flourishing during his time with us.’
