Nigeria the African powerhouse for recruiters
Nigeria – the African powerhouse for recruiters
& lsquo;its international’, the recruitment market’s most experienced provider of overseas contract management services, is pleased to launch the first integrated, immigration and local employment/payroll service for contractors and interims of any nationality placed on assignment in Nigeria.
Because the business community recognises Nigeria as a country crippled with corruption, the critical challenge for & lsquo;its international’ was to create a “solution”, appropriate for an international recruiter’s expatriate and Nigerian placements, which safeguards their incomes whilst leaving the appointed local Employer of Record to make the due tax and social security payments to the local statutory departments. Being aware of current charges against four British nationals from the recruiter Swift Technical Energy Solutions Ltd for conspiring to bribe Nigerian officials to lower the taxes their workers paid in the country, & lsquo;its international’ has exercised extreme diligence in determining and managing the solution protocols.
& lsquo;its international’developed this innovative “contract management solution” for international recruiters wanting to safely make placements in Nigeria whose economy, particularly buoyed by high oil prices and the rapidly growing cellular phone market, grew 6.6% in 2012 and will soon overhaul South Africa in terms of GDP to make it the continent’s wealthiest country.
In addition to the multitude of major oil, gas and petrochemical developments, & lsquo;its international’ highlights other major projects requiring expatriate skills and local labour – namely:
· Eko Atlantic– a visionary new city project being built on 5,000,000 square metres of land reclaimed from the sea in Lagos. It will provide the space and infrastructure to house 250,000 people and be a workplace for a further 150,000. The developers are South Energyx Nigeria Limited.
· Abuja World Trade Centre– a $1 billion, 37 storey construction with residential towers being constructed by the Churchgate Group.
· Mambilla Dam Project– a massive project awarded to Tractebel Engineering.
· The Lekki Free Trade Zone in Lagos– among the many investors are Puma Energy, Imad Oil and Gas FZE, the China Railway Construction Corporation and YFK Pharmaceutical FZE.
· The Badagry Deep Water Port Complex- one of the largest construction projects in Africa which has been awarded to APM Terminals.
