Collaboration with the MiSK Foundation saw 12 interns train across all areas of Amaala’s business
Amaala aims to develop young Saudi talent by providing on-the-job training to boost skills and expertise through its youth empowerment programme. The initiative is said to reflect Saudi Arabia’s drive to nurture local talent to step into leadership roles in established and new economic sectors.
According to a statement from Amaala, the programme kicked off with the MiSK/Amaala Corporate Internship Programme, a strategic partnership with the MiSK Foundation. The programme is said to have successfully worked with 12 interns across all areas of the business over six months.
Amaala said the interns will graduate from the programme by the end of June 2020 and that it is now getting ready to welcome 30 new interns to the business. The new interns will be handling a wide variety of roles across the organisation, the company said.
“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. 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,” said Amaala CEO Nicholas Naples.
Future programmes will be rolled out across six-month cycles, with numbers expected to grow alongside the business, Amaala noted.
