Job seeking in Nigerian Hospitals

Recruitment for specialist positions in a complex sector like health, will always be a challenge. This is especially the case if the management team of a facility are really looking for the best people to provide care for their patients. This has been a problem in Nigeria for years as the recruitment process is hardly ever transparent. Previously, the only option for recruiters and job seekers was  the Guardian newspaper on Tuesdays and lately also on Thursdays. But the world has moved on, things have begun to change. Website aggregators are picking up jobs advertised in Nigeria, and making them available to a much wider range of people. It can only be in our best interest. But now we have to solve the problem of electricity and bandwidth. Despite the challenges we face, it is great that these jobs are now available to a much wider and diverse audience. Let us just hope that the recruitment process is equally as transparent.
