C & I Leasing Plc (C&I Leasing), foremost leasing and ancillary services conglomerate, will tomorrow launch an online recruitment platform tagged: GetAJobNG.com designed to match talented candidates on the job market with innovative companies looking to grow their staff strength.
The event, billed to hold at the Four Points by Sheraton, Victoria Island, in Lagos, is the first in the two-phased event themed: “Talent is Not Enough.”
According to the organisers, the event is expected to host a gathering of thought leaders, subject matter experts and leading recruitment and human resource operations professionals from across the country.
Commenting on the launch, Andrew Otike-Odibi, managing director and chief executive officer, C & I Leasing Plc, said the company has vast experience as a service provider in the Nigerian labour market for almost three decades, noting that it will leverage on technology to meet the needs of both recruiters and job seekers.
“Our big idea is to become Africa’s leading specialized talent marketplace, connecting companies to the best talent available. We cater to both large and small organizations,” he said.
He added: “More than ever before, recruiters want to fill positions easily, quickly and cost effectively, shortlist great talents and test out their compatibility with the job.
“They don’t want to spend time sorting heaps of applications for candidates who are not the right fit for their vacancies.
“Candidates on the other hand, need a platform that provides them with current, direct and authentic job vacancies. They are looking for an online platform that delivers quick response on applications, easy, short application processes and alert notifications on relevant jobs.
“A career fair targeted mainly at job seekers is therefore in the works, as we seek to open new employment opportunities for thousands across the country and continent.”
Also, Amina Oyagbola, a seasoned human resources and management consultant is expected to give a keynote presentation that speaks to challenges many organizations and job seekers face in the recruitment process.
The event, according to the organisers, would also feature an interactive session, just as the GetAJobNG website will feature a live demonstration highlighting unique features of the portal while recruiters can sign up immediately to get connected to an increasing pool of candidates.
