ABOUT AWA

AWA is a different type of organisation. We have a strong vision for making working lives better. This usually makes people lives outside of work better too.

AWA is the world’s leading community of practice, training, and coaching organisation. We run a global network of business community meetups and support other communities and conferences to share knowledge, ideas, and experiences freely.

We operate on the cutting edge of business change.

OPPORTUNITY TO WORK AS AN AWA TRAINER

You will be part of a growing training team to deliver this content on public and private courses.

This role is for someone who wants to become the best at what they do. Where the quality and integrity of their choices matters more than the quantity.

If that resonates with you and you want an opportunity that will send you around the world (after covid), and invite you to contribute to the world’s best training materials, and deliver that content to organisations across the globe and for now all online, then get in contact and tell us about you.
