President Buhari

THE federal government today, Monday, September 6, 2021, opened the online application portal for the Nigeria Jubilee fellow programme designed to offer jobs to Nigerian graduates who have finished the one year mandatory national youth service scheme.

The portal will be open for interested applicants and will be active up to October 20, 2021.

To be eligible for the fellowship, expected applicant must be Nigerians who must have graduated no earlier than 2017, with at least second class lower (2.2) and aged at most 30. Applicants, who must have completed the mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) or have a certificate of exemption, must also be currently unemployed.

Other requirements include demonstrable interest or commitment in the chosen career field and also demonstrable interest or commitment to contribute to Nigeria’s socio-economic development. They must also have excellent time management and a professional attitude and have good verbal and written communication skills.

The job fellowship programme, launched on Tuesday last week by President Buhari, is said to be a youth empowerment partnership initiative between the federal government and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to connect talented graduates with local job opportunities that apply their expertise while equipping them with world-class practical knowledge and relevant skills.

“The programme is expected to create new opportunities for 20,000 graduates annually while the beneficiaries will maximise the opportunities presented to them and also aims to equip Nigerians, with practical knowledge and relevant skills for 12 months, with or without job experience, thereby connecting them with local job opportunities,” President Buhari said during the launch.

It would also give three options for applicants upon completion of the fellowship, including retained with respective host organisations, entrepreneurship opportunities, and a platform to compete and access future jobs and employment opportunities.
