AUI and Leyton Break New Ground with Innovative On-Campus Hybrid Freelance Consulting Opportunities
AUI continues to innovate with employability by bringing international consulting jobs to students on campus. On Campus, Leyton Consulting managers were welcomed by President Bensaid, Deborah Bartlett, and AUI students to inaugurate a new office space on AUI campus: Leyton@AUI.
Accompanied by Vice President Taylor, COO Touhami, and the SSE Dean Al-Majeed, the Leyton@AUI office space is equipped with dedicated and secure terminals from Leyton who supervised the installation to ensure the AUI remote students could continue their value-added work with Leyton teams in the UK, where AUI students join consulting teams and provide technical writing services as freelancers.
President Bensaid commended both Leyton and our students for creating this unique partnership that brings together students and industry on our campus and provides work experience alongside academic experiences.
Deborah Bartlett, Chief Employability Officer, explained why this was important to AUI students: "Students can now benefit as free-lance employees while going to school full time, F2F in Ifrane. After Covid, most companies adopted hybrid or totally remote work environments - so now students can work from Ifrane! Leyton recognizes that AUI talent is strong and wants to offer consulting opportunities early and often. This pilot group of 6 students will open the door for many more of these remote work opportunities in the future."
