The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has launched an online job portal for recruitment across the country, with a promise to be transparent in its recruitment process.
The exchange said the portal was meant “to attract top talent and optimize its recruitment process”, while enhancing its recruitment capability, increasing turnaround time and providing a consumer-friendly candidate experience.
NSE, as an employer, said the recruitment will work in line with its values of “transparency, teamwork, integrity and professionalism (TTIP)”.
The portal is currently designed to recruit graduate trainees, interns, entry-level and other experienced staff across 13 states of the federation and the nation’s capital.
The states are Ogun, Bauchi, Edo, Oyo, Kwara, Kaduna, Kano, Lagos, Onitsha, Imo, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, and Yola.
In a statement on Thursday, NSE said the portal “will handle all aspects of recruitment, from application, to scheduling interviews and onboarding of new hires”.
Pai Gamde, head of human resources at NSE, noted that “technological advances have streamlined almost all business functions and the Human resource function is not an exception”.
“By taking our recruitment process online through our website, we have developed a secure platform to capture, reach out and engage with qualified candidates who can support our continuing drive for growth in the Nigerian capital market.
“The entire recruitment process is automated from start to finish. This in turn allows for rapid feedback and real time updates on whether an applicant has been successful or if the vacancy has already been filled.
“The platform also provides a fully responsive design, optimizing the site for mobile and desktop to provide a consistent, user-friendly experience on any device.”
Chinelo Chukuma-Onwujei, team lead, NSE talent management, said “the portal which can be accessed from the careers section of the NSE website supports the exchange’s position on diversity and equal opportunities”.
“Through the portal, job seekers interested in joining the NSE team can efficiently search for jobs suited to their interests and capabilities, create resumes and submit applications for specific open positions listed on our website, in addition to submitting resumes for future general or specific consideration.”
The Exchange says it strives to sustain its employment value proposition by creating and maintaining a culture that develops talent, increases internal competition, promotes innovation, diversity.
NSE recently received the 2016 employer of choice award in the under 1,000 employees category from the HR Peoples Magazine.
