    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    ● Sri Lanka is constantly highlighted as a top 10 travel destination in Asia, and is a beautiful island with
    beautiful beaches that attract surfers and Dolphin & Whale watchers, amazing hills perfect for
    hiking and a wide range of wild-life.

    ● It is a safe emerging market which should interest anyone trained in Design. It offers the opportunity to work in an environment where UK design degrees are delivered, while experiencing a different south asian culture and take on design.
    It provides innumerable opportunities not available in other destinations.

    ● Sri Lanka is rich in cultural heritage and is unique in what it can offer, with a society deeply rooted in multi-cultural local & colonial heritage, with interesting research possibilities for designers during their time in Sri Lanka, such as craft, sustainability, and high-tech apparel, consumer trends in an emerging market, as well adapting UK University curriculum to meet local and regional demands.

    We have opportunities for highly motivated individuals with experience in design, who are passionate about teaching and sharing their knowledge from their own perspective, and who will help our local staff ensure a high-quality student experience and inspire creativity. Workawayers will be able to share their expertise that would enhance the existing student experience and will be complementing the role of our current tutors and lecturers.

    We are specifically looking for individuals who have an exceptional track record in driving innovative and creative projects; empowered people who are innovative, aspiring, persevering and passionate about pushing boundaries in a challenging environment. Our team is inspired by a bigger vision and is committed to creating impact within our regional design culture. Individuals are offered numerous opportunities in a very entrepreneurial culture for growth.
