About Us

The National Electronic Labour Exchange (NELEX) is a digital platform created by the Nigerian government to facilitate the matching of job seekers with available employment opportunities across the country. It is designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the labor market by providing a centralized database for job seekers and employers. NELEX allows job seekers to create profiles and upload their resumes, search for available job opportunities, and apply for jobs online. Employers can also create profiles, post job vacancies, and search for potential candidates based on their qualifications and experience. The platform was launched in 2017 by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment in collaboration with the International Labour Organization (ILO). It is intended to help reduce unemployment in Nigeria by providing a more efficient and transparent job market, making it easier for job seekers to find employment and for employers to find suitable candidates. NELEX is part of the government's efforts to create more job opportunities for Nigerians, particularly in the formal sector. The platform is expected to play a significant role in Nigeria's economic development by promoting a more productive and efficient labor market.

The NELEX portal has been recently updated and redeveloped with new and exciting features that aim to streamline the job search process and make it easier for job seekers and employers to find each other. At NELEX, we are committed to reducing unemployment in Nigeria by promoting transparency and efficiency in the labor market. Our inbuilt CV builder allows job seekers to create a professional resume that highlights their skills and experience, making it easier for employers to identify suitable candidates for job vacancies.

We understand that finding employment can be a daunting task, which is why we've included a range of tools and resources to support job seekers. Our brand new migrant resource center is specifically designed to assist potential migrants and migrants find their footing outside the country. NELEX also now offers a payment processor for recruiter's license payment, allowing recruiters to pay for their licenses quickly and securely online. Our CAC and NIN verification tools further enhance the transparency and trustworthiness of our platform.
