Connecting local talent with opportunities within The Special Economic Zones

Thank you for your interest in the Enterprise Cayman “Summer in the City” internship programme! 

This summer we aim to place 20+ young people with internship opportunities throughout the Cayman Enterprise City special economic zones. The 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 months. Some internships will take place with Cayman Enterprise City (the development company) and others will take place within companies who are part of the three special economic zones, which include: Cayman Tech City, Cayman Commodities & Derivatives City, and Cayman Maritime & Aviation City.

To participate, we ask that you complete this 20-40-minute survey so that we can better assist in matching you with a potential internship placement. Once a match has been made, successful candidates will be invited to come in for an interview with CEC and/or the zone organisation. Please note that your answers submitted in this survey will be shared with participating zone companies. We will do our very best to match everyone who applies but cannot guarantee that all applicants will be successful.

Please complete this survey by 22 March 2020 to participate.
