White Paper on Nigeria Hiring trends: 2018

Africa’s leading oil producer had been hard hit by falling prices for the commodity, which accounts for the majority of its export revenue thus plunging the country into recession. One of the consequences of the recession was unemployment and layoffs which tend to increase as a way of curtailing expenses.

 

After seeing its worst recession in 25 years, Nigeria’s economy is limping back to normalcy.  Many believe the country is officially out of recession.  The country is now diversifying its economy to include manufacturing, agriculture and exports and investing in skills acquisition in diverse sectors, stressing on practical applications to reduce joblessness and assist them in finding jobs in Nigeria.

 

Currently, companies are looking for people who are innovative and entrepreneurial. More companies are hiring and are not deterred by the recent recession as they are able to get highly competent talent with prior Nigeria experience at competitive salaries. What is happening is that those who do not have these required skills are let go while those who have are being sought after and hired. The recruitment landscape is quite promising with employers having an upper hand.
