Job Details

In response to the high unemployment rates in over 15 states of Nigeria, The Federal Government of Nigeria through the Public Works, Youth and Women Employment Component of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Program (SURE-P) has established the Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), which aims to provide the unemployed graduate youths with job apprenticeship opportunities that will expose them to skills and experiences relevant to the current labour market and enhance their employability.
