Our internship are usually 2 to 3 months. Internship are typically non-paid assignment but we can provide a small allowance. All interns will attend training on our project management methodology in order for them to use this approach on their projects. They can also attend some of our public courses or in-house courses.
Depends on performance, one or more intern could be offered a regular full-time position with SUKAD.
One key message, part of the intern work will be independent (on their own) since our CEO is not in the office frequently.
