The Nigerian Stock Exchange has launched an online portal to attract top talent and optimise its recruitment process. The recruitment portal which is expected to enhance the Exchange’s recruitment capability, increase turnaround time and provide a consumer-friendly candidate experience, will handle all aspects of recruitment, from application, to scheduling interviews and onboarding of new hires.
Speaking on this development, Pai Gamde, Head, Human Resources, 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, optimising the site for mobile and desktop to provide a consistent, user-friendly experience on any device”, she added.
On her part, Chinelo Chukuma-Onwujei, Team Lead, Talent Management, NSE 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 strives to sustain its employment value proposition by creating and maintaining a culture that develops talent, increases internal competition, promotes innovation, diversity, and provides opportunities for every employee to succeed to the full extent of their abilities. The Nigerian Stock Exchange recently received the 2016 Employer of Choice award in the Under 1,000 Employees category from the HR Peoples Magazine.
