Jamaica will hit another historic sporting landmark when the country becomes the first Caribbean nation to be engaged in the eqUIP Internship programme, with the appointment of an Accounting Officer this year.

The programme has been up and running under the guidance of the Commonwealth Sport Foundation since September 2014 within Europe and Africa, with over 60 placements in 18 different Commonwealth Games Associations so far.

The eqUIP Internship seeks to assist in the development of their organisational capacity through the appointment of interns from local tertiary educational institutions.
