AMAALA to hire 30 Saudi interns by July 2020
The move is part of Saudi Arabia's drive to nurture local talent into leadership roles
Saudi Arabia’s AMAALA gigaproject is offering job opportunities for 30 Saudi youths through its internship programme in partnership with the MiSK Foundation.
Launched at the start of this year, the AMAALA/MiSK programme worked with 12 interns across all areas of the business over a period of six months and will graduate from the programme by the end of June 2020.
After successfully completing the programme, AMAALA will induct 30 interns to a wide variety of roles across the organisation and the developer announced that future programmes will be rolled out across six-month cycles, with numbers expected to grow alongside the business.
AMAALA said that the initiative reflects Saudi Arabia’s ongoing drive to nurture and prepare local talent to step into leadership roles in established and new economic sectors.
Commenting on the recruitment drive, AMAALA’s chief executive officer, Nicholas Naples, said: “AMAALA is committed to supporting and nurturing Saudi talent. We’re firmly focused on helping these young, ambitious minds reach their full potential. Investment in our youth is key to the success of our business, and our partnership with the MiSK Foundation will help us to identify and recruit the leaders of tomorrow.”
He added: “Our collaboration with MiSK will secure the future of the AMAALA workforce, and the future of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for generations to come.”
AMAALA is also set to launch its second programme - the AMAALA Future Leaders Programme in late 2020 and has been designed to recruit top-performing graduates to become part of AMAALA’s senior management team.
The 18-month programme will see participants based at AMAALA’s headquarters for a six-month immersion, before embarking on a year of specialist training in their respective fields of expertise.
