NNPC is Recruiting!

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) says it has today (13th March 2019) begun a recruitment exercise for fresh graduates and experienced professionals.

The group spokesman, Ndu Ughamadu, confirmed the authenticity of the 
recruitment advert which became public on Wednesday.

“The portal was opened today and I have received hundreds of inquiries whether it is correct or not,” he said in a statement.

“We are going to recruit people from different engineering fields, especially fresh graduates and equally in the administrative areas.”

Ughamadu added that the recruitment would come in three categories; fresh graduates, senior officers/ supervisory cadre and managerial cadre, TheCable reports. The recruitment portal URL


Recall that in November 2018, in response to allegations of non–tranperant recruitment processes, the national oil company said it had never maintained a staff strength of 70,000 throughout its history.

At that time, it also denied carrying out a performance audit of its staff.

In the past several fraudulent online platforms have posted fake recruitment programmes purporting to be acting on behalf of the NNPC.

In one of such desperate moves by such platforms, the corporation said some applicants had issued forged letters, text messages and social media invitations to a purported interview at its office in Abuja or one of its subsidiaries across the country.
