Harris Paints remains a champion in building careers across the Caribbean
Harris Paints, the Caribbean Champions of Colour, is continuing its positive impact as a champion for career development with yet another cohort of tertiary level students benefitting from the company’s annual Internship and Summer Employment Programme.
Just over thirty highachievers between the ages of 16 and 21 were selected to participate in the programme which is currently being executed across the company’s Caribbean locations.
The interns are currently studying a wide range of subjects including Accounts and Economics, Management of Business, Computers and Aesthetics, and Ecology and Biology.
Ian Kenyon, Chief Executive Officer, Harris Paints, said the goal was to provide students with an authentic working experience while challenging them to leverage their academic training and skills to add value to the workplace while advancing their personal career goals.
“Our interns work under the guidance and supervision of our most experienced staff members and they are challenged to reach for Harris Paints’ world-class operational and product standards. Our approach is one where participants receive detailed training and instruction, and can undertake tasks and projects with a level of responsibility akin to our fulltime employees,” he said.
