Audio engineering training services provider SAE Institute Amman has signed an industry employment partnership agreement with Jordan-based radio broadcasting organisation Seagulls Broadcast.
The agreement, which is the first of its kind in the Middle East radio broadcasting sector, provides Seagulls with the first right to employ graduates from SAE's 2008 Audio Engineering program.
The graduates will be provided with an opportunity to work within Seagulls Group of companies which includes three of the leading radio stations in Jordan: Beat FM (102.5), Mood FM (92.0) and Mazaj FM (95.3).
The agreement also guarantees one position for Audio Engineering graduates within Seagulls TV broadcasting division, while the second position is geared towards the company's audio/ video production technical department.
Providing further incentive for aspiring students, Seagulls has also committed to reimbursing the successful students 100% of their tuition fees following the candidates' completion of 24 months of full employment with the organisation.
"This marks the beginning of a strategic partnership between SAE Institute and Seagulls providing our graduates with a unique opportunity to implement their theoretical and practical experience and education into the real world with one of the most renowned broadcasting companies in Jordan," said Marco Bettelli, managing director of SAE Institute. 'We are thrilled to provide this kind of incentive to our students and help direct them into the right career path."
Seagulls managing director Nedal Khader claimed the agreement marked an extension of the organisation's corporate and social responsibility platform providing opportunities to Jordanian youth.
"As a leading broadcast organisation, we want young people and their parents to know that there are rewarding career opportunities within the creative media arts industry," he said. "It is our desire that others in the industry in Jordan will follow our lead, to provide employment commitments to recruit the best of SAE's top graduates."
