NNPC recruitment 2019: Oral Interview begins July 1
Successful candidates in the aptitude test segment in on-going recruitment into the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) will begin engagement for oral interview on Monday, July 1st, 2019, Discover Africa News has learned.
It is exactly one month after about 60, 000 out of over 26 million applicants wrote aptitude tests in about 50 centres across the country. Unlike the June 1 exercise, the NNPC did not announce commencement of oral interview publicly but this newspaper gathered from an insider source that less than 5000 persons have notified to appear for oral interview starting from Monday.
It is unclear how many persons the NNPC would employ in the 2019 recruitment exercise but sources said about 1000 (One Thousand) persons are likely to be hired by the Corporation .
The NNPC is one of Nigeria’s upward-looking government agencies with attractive remuneration package, perhaps, the reason many Nigerians want to work there.
Last month, in a series of tweets via its verified Twitter handle @NNPC group, the Corporation said the recruitment exercise, which kicked off via nationwide adverts in the national dailies and online media on March 13, 2019, and followed by the shortlisting of qualified candidates which commenced from about 27 March, 2019, had entered a third phase.
Referencing a Press release signed by its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, NNPC stated that shortlisting of candidates for the exercise had been concluded, and that shortlisted candidates had been scheduled to sit for Computer Based Test on Saturday, 1st June, 2019 across the country.
“Notification of progression to the next stage has been sent to all shortlisted candidates via text and e-mail, while other details such as test centre and time will be sent on or before the 27th of May, 2019,” the release stated.
Ughamadu relayed that validation of credentials of candidates would be a continuous process throughout the exercise, stressing that candidates discovered not to meet the requirements or who had presented false documents at any stage would be withdrawn from the exercise.
It added that the CBT would be administered in about 50 centres across the country, saying those who emerge successful in the test would subsequently be invited for oral interviews for final selection
