Jobberman offers free training to Northern youths

The firm said it targeted to train five million young Nigerians in job-ready skills

Jobberman, a recruitment agency, said it has trained and certified over 5,600 youths in Kano State in its free soft skills training course.

In a statement, the firm said the training was offered during a three-day visit of its officials to Kano, noting that the training was under the Young Africa Works Initiative of the Mastercard Foundation.

The firm said it targeted to train five million young Nigerians in job-ready skills within the next five years, while focusing on the North and beyond.

The strategy involves the team embarking on such visits to hold training, focus group discussions and meetings with stakeholders.

The CEO of Jobberman Nigeria, Ms Rolake Rosiji, said the initiative had armed many youths in Kano with skills and knowledge that transcended beyond the classroom and made for better graduates and open room for more job opportunities.

Ms Rosiji said, “The Northern part of the country has had several challenges regarding access to quality education. As a result, not many Northerners have taken advantage of opportunities on the global stage.”

She further said the initiative continued to increase the employability of Nigerian youths, consequently reducing the number of people who lived below the poverty line.

Interested applicants are advised to visit the Jobberman website for more information about the registration
