Aliko Dangote

The management of Dangote Refinery has announced plans to recruit young engineering graduates from Nigerian institutions, including polytechnics across the country.

The management has however insisted that only graduates below the age of 30 who must have graduated with either First Class or Second Class Upper Division (2:1) will be qualified for jobs in the refinery.

Specifically, the disciplines required include chemical, mechanical, electrical, and electrical/electronics engineering from “notable” higher institutions.

“In line with the critical phase of the Refinery Project and the need to source for the best talents, our Management intends to recruit graduate engineers across the nation,”

“These talented and brilliant engineering graduates will be less than thirty (30) years of age with either First Class or Second Class Upper Division (2:1) as part of our growing vision,”

“We are seizing this opportunity to request you to send us a list of your fresh graduates from 2019, 2020, and 2021 sets in the listed specializations for testing and recruitment,” the management stated in a letter to the institutions

According to Anthony Chiejina, the Dangote Group’s spokesperson, the same letter had been sent across to 25 universities and the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN).

He described it as an ongoing process for the refinery, adding that the graduates have to go through five stages of aptitude tests, after which, they would be sent abroad for training.
