Below is a selection of resources for searching for employment opportunities as a foreigner in Nigeria.

General Job Search Engines and Classifieds

With the sites below, you can expect to get a 0.5 to 1.0% response rate (people who will respond back to you to whom you sent your application/CV.) Nevertheless, I encourage you to give these sites a try as you never know what you will come up with or what connections you can make from a simple e-mail or application.

  • JobbermanJobberman is a giant in the Nigeria job search industry.
  • Job List NigeriaYou will see after going through these search engines that they tend to not be all that unique in terms of their interface. Job List Nigeria belongs in the not-so-unique category. It does have legit job postings though.
  • Hot Nigerian JobsLove the name of this site.
  • Rigzone: Jobs in the oil and gas industry.
  • Career Jet: I’m sure you’ve heard of Career Jet. They have job search options for Nigeria.

  • Michael Page Africa:  I used Michael Page back in my Africa days. The site is well known.
  • Overseas Jobs:  I find that there is often significant overlap between the postings on this site and that of other sites. Nevertheless this site has been around for a while.
