GIA Internship Programme

The GIA Internship Programme (or GIP as it is commonly known) is an annual talent development initiative introduced in 2008 to provide undergraduates with the opportunity to experience the dynamic general insurance industry.

Interns are attached to participating host companies for a period of 10-12 weeks, working under the guidance of a mentor. The GIP is typically during the May-August semester break.

A testament to the success of the GIP, over 260 interns have benefitted over the past 10 years, establishing its positions as a world-class internship programme.
