 Share This On:


PRESS RELEASE – Thirty-nine students have been chosen for the St Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) Summer Employment Programme which began on June 15, 2015.

The LUCELEC Summer Employment Programme facilitates internships for students on vacation from secondary schools, the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, and university.

Beginning in the early 1980’s and throughout the years, the programme has nurtured hundreds of Saint Lucian youth including many of the company’s current Management Team. The Summer Employment Programme is a tangible opportunity for students to get an appreciation for the demands of working in an environment that places a premium on efficiency.

The company benefits as well, using the Summer Employment Programme as an opportunity to identify talented young individuals who later on may be interested in working for LUCELEC. These include students in the LUCELEC Scholarship Programme who the company puts a premium on preparing for their eventual careers and lives.

LUCELEC Human Resource Manager Mrs Nicole Duboulay says the programme is also designed to capitalize on the students’ skills sets.

“As much as possible we try to match students with their areas of interest on the job, but importantly we seek to ensure they get an understanding of the rigours of the work place and an opportunity to see how what the learn at school may be applied in the work environment,” she explains.

The interns have been stationed in various Departments across the company. During orientation they were introduced to the company’s policies and standards, given an overview of the different departments and the company’s history.

The orientation also included a tour of the power station, giving the interns a first-hand look at the processes involved in the generation of electricity.

Additionally, all students will write monthly reports of their employment experience. For those on school internships, reports will be submitted to their respective schools.

The LUCELEC Summer Employment Programme will end on August 31, 2015.

  1. All of u are idiots. She is very highly qualified and obviously not as ignorant as you all are. So sad that this is the way St Lucians think. Disgusting. And so you're saying that if someone is qualified because their name.is ....they should not be given a fair chance at at job? Smh. Lucians never cease to amaze me.

  2. I AGREE WITH CHRISTINE. Nenen and pah-weh that running things in St. Lucia. Countless of young people with better grades and higher level education but they will never secure a job before some dunce that have nenen and pahweh. I AM NOT SAYING THE ELITE ISN'T QUALIFIED FOR HER POSITION. THIS IS A GENERAL STATEMENT!

  3. Christine you are very correct. Only the elite few always benefit so a lit of supposedly good things always end up with a bitter taste

  4. What an ignorant fool you are Christine. You and others with your same mind set will always be kept back not because of your name but because of your level of ignorance !!!! SMH at yall Lucians. Duboulay Is Her MARRIED Name By The Way. Idiot. She held this position prior to being married. You Fool.

  5. Instead of valuing the fact that these 39 students are getting work experience to progress themselves, you choose to highlight someone's name? Nepotism isn't killing the country, unemployment and ignorance are.

    • NS, you seem to be living in a bubble. Nepotism is a huge problem on this island. Many have jobs that they don't love and are not trained for, but get it because of their uncle or nenen. Wake up please!

  6. Every big position in this country is either Dubou...., Monp...., Chast...., Dev..., etc. Give the 'no name' folks a break too please. Nepotism is killing the country.
