Working in Nigeria

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I am considering working in Warri, Delta State Nigeria. Does anyone out there have any experience of working in Nigeria. If so any tips/advice/warnings etc would be welcome

 

Thanks

Is this an April Fool's post? Better take your flak jacket and Uzi if you plan on going there.

I know quite a lot of Germans working there. Obviously I don't see much of them to ask how it's going! What I'd say is that is seems very much the "last resort" - they are older men in technical professions who have given up hope of employment here. They say it "pays well" but that is all relative of course - certainly no better than well-paid jobs here.

 

They seem to live in a very cushioned "German" world there, employed by German companies, working in German (so no idea how a non-German lives there).

 

My own opinion (and I'm considering an offer for a risky place right now) is, yes, it's not the safest place but, on the other hand, plenty of people get on working there. Take some time to think it through.
