In a bid to boost employment opportunities in Nigeria, Gr8jobsng has launched ‘Project Employ’, an initiative to assist companies and organisations recruit staff at no cost.

According the recruitment firm, the successful launch of the Gr8jobsng platform in June 2016, a platform hailed as the number one recruitment platform in Africa, has continued to gather momentum by providing top notch world class human resources services to jobseekers, employers and professional training institutions registered on the platform.

In a statement made available to THISDAY, the CEO Gr8jobsng, Mrs. Omomene Odike, stated that as part of its goal to improve employment opportunities in Nigeria and make jobs easily available and accessible to job seekers, “Gr8jobsng is launching its first initiative called ‘Project Employ’ specifically tailored and directed at the employer group which includes SMEs, large organisations, multinationals and international companies with particular emphasis on the SME group.”

With the aptly name, Project Employ, the initiative, Odike said offers employers the unique opportunity to have their official roles (vacancies) from intern/entry level-senior management filled at no cost by Gr8jobsng in a bid to help boost employment in Nigeria and to give jobseekers and professionals a great opportunity to get hired.

The statement said: “With the official announcement of recession in August and the numerous job cuts that followed the recession, this initiative has come at the most opportune moment for jobseekers and professionals who are trying to secure a job or change a job.

“With the experience of having run a HR consulting firm, ‘U-Connect’ for 12 years, I fully understand the recruitment process and how highly important it is to employers to get the right employee, the pain of the recession and what this means for so many Nigerians. We hope to promote employment in Nigeria by offering our recruitment expertise for free to companies and organisations for a few months.”

She said the initiative is billed to run its first edition in November and December 2016 and “employers who wish to take advantage of the initiative should visit the Gr8jobsng platform on register as an employer (registration is free) and fill the Project Employ form which can be found under the home tab on the menu bar. Or alternatively send a mail to signifying interest in having roles filled via this initiative and stating the available roles.”

Also, in the statement, Head, E-Commerce at Gr8Jobsng, Mr. Bidemi Ladipo, said ‘Project Employ’ initiative was created out of the company’s passion for supporting the growth of the Nigerian economy particularly at a time of recession and its drive to enhance the availability of jobs by connecting job seekers with employers from the comfort of their homes using their mobile devices and PCs to get Gr8Jobs on its platform
