Belgrave the top intern at Flow!
Nineteen year-old Belgrave, who is currently pursuing her Law degree at the University of the West Indies, was announced as the top summer student after eight weeks of on-the-job training with Barbados’ leading telecommunications provider.
“Working at Flow has really opened my eyes about corporate law, which was my major focus when I first decided to pursue a career in law. I was shocked when they called my name but I’m very happy and excited about the award,” she said.
Belgrave, a former student of the St Michael School, was assigned to the company’s Legal and Regulatory department.
“The experience was very different from what I expected. I had the opportunity to read through contracts and see what the language was like and how agreements were specifically framed with different terms and conditions. I also drafted a contract that the company actually used, so it felt great to know I was contributing to something tangible.”
In an all-encompassing course, Flow provided the students with invaluable insight into their future careers in the areas of Information Technology, Sales and Marketing, Accounts and Finance, Legal and Regulatory, Human Resources and Corporate Communications.
Some of the students were also assigned to C&W Business, the business-to-business arm of Cable & Wireless Communications, and the company also hosted weekly workshops aimed at providing added insight about the local and regional telecoms sector.
“We are very proud of our interns as they assisted us in keeping the people of Barbados connected over the past several weeks. All of them displayed a level of professionalism beyond their years and we were pleased to see them blossom before our very eyes,” said Esther Tull, Human Resources Manager, Flow Barbados.
“As many of our interns now transition from students to young working professionals, we wish them continued success on their journey and we know their experience in the Flow Vision Summer Programme will stand them in good stead.”
