Amaala launches Saudi youth empowerment programme

RIYADH, June 1, 2020

Amaala, the ultra-luxury destination located along Saudi Arabia’s northwestern coast, has launched its youth empowerment programme to develop young Saudi talent by providing on-the-job training to boost skills and expertise.

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, said a statement from Amaala.

The programme kicked off with the MiSK/Amaala Corporate Internship Programme, a strategic partnership with the MiSK Foundation.

The internship programme successfully worked with 12 interns across all areas of the business over a period of six months. The interns will graduate from the programme by the end of June 2020, said the statement from the company.

Amaala is now getting ready to welcome 30 new interns to the business in the coming months, it added.

CEO Nicholas Naples pointed out that Amaala was 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. 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," he stated.

The Programme, conducted in partnership with MiSK, welcomed 12 interns to Amaala following a rigorous interview process, said the statement from Amaala.

After successfully completing the programme, the Saudi firm will induct 30 interns who will be handling a wide variety of roles across the organisation in July.

Future programmes will be rolled out across six-month cycles, with numbers expected to grow alongside the business, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
