We believe in giving talented young people opportunities to contribute to globally impactful projects, experiences of solving complex challenges, and to become a better version of themselves.
Awal’s Junior Professional Program (JP) hires gifted or grit-driven talented young professionals (usually around the ages of 16-27) from a diverse set of fields such as supply chain analysts, product managers, content creators, data scientists, developers, strategists, and so on.
All JPs are given a 2-year contract to work on a specific area that the person has already explored. The first year of the program is an extensive learning experience and the rest of the time is spent on working between different departments within the area of interest to prepare the young professional for an extraordinary change-maker and enriching career with AWAL in an open/changing capacity.
