Internship Opportunity with USAID SCHEP and the Jordan Southern Ghawr Company

USAID SCHEP and the Jordan Southern Ghawr Company have a special opportunity for junior and aspiring architects and designers! This is a fantastic opportunity for students and recent graduates to gain hands-on experience with a local enterprise in an up-and-coming touristic area.

The Jordan Southern Ghawr Company seeks an interior designer or architect (fresh graduate or advanced student) to redesign the exterior, interior and landscape of the Safi Kitchen building in Ghawr as Safi.

Safi Kitchen is a farm-to-table restaurant located in the Southern Jordan Valley. The structure was purpose-built as a restaurant, community center, and site for cooking classes. Safi Kitchen and its partners seek to add decorative elements and give the space a welcoming local character to appeal to visitors from Jordan and elsewhere.

The selected candidate will sign a contract with the Jordan Southern Ghawr Company to develop their design in close consultation with the client and partners, and then oversee and follow up on the implementation for the duration of the work. The total estimated period of engagement is four months. The chosen candidate will receive a modest stipend for the duration of the internship, as well as additional compensation for their finalized design, and USAID SCHEP will issue a certificate acknowledging the designer’s participation in the project.
