Team

Jala Namibia is approaching its projects through a small core team and the use of freelance experts. Generally, our work is based on a “take-the-best approach”, meaning that we keep the core team to a minimum and rather rely on the best, freelance experts for a specific task or phase of our projects.

Our pool of freelance experts come from all fields of business, e.g. finance, marketing, ICT, consulting, people & human resources.
