First Citizens UWI Internship Programme

In 2017, the First Citizens Group partnered with the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus and developed the First Citizens UWI Internship Programme. This annual programme was conceptualized to facilitate the development of top talent as it creates a bridge with the corporate world and tertiary education giving the unique opportunity for students to apply their training in the development of practical solutions to real business challenges, in an enabling corporate environment.

The First Citizens UWI Internship programme is focused on producing quality and demonstrably make a difference in the lives of each intern. For this reason, the programme is specifically designed with three key components; (1) to attract top talent from among the student pool, (2) to be practical in its application of student skills to business issues and (3) to be quantifiable in its business impact and learning impact to the student. Interns benefit from coaching and guidance to improve their technical, attitudinal, behavioural and leadership competencies. 

This Programme is a demonstration of the Group’s commitment to Youth Development and Education, as we continuously strive to make a positive impact on the lives of each enrolled individual.
