70Percent of Nigerians earn less than N100,000 …Jobberman’s Nigeria 1st Salary Survey Results

share on:

Jobberman.com yesterday released Nigeria’s first salary survey results and it is a real eye opener.

Highlights of the survey included:

  • 70% of Nigerians earn less than N100,000.
  • Highest proportion of those that earn less than N20,000 per month are those in the education industry.
  • More females than males are dissatisfied with their current jobs

According to Opeyemi Awoyemi, the co-founder of Jobberman.com 

These survey findings profiles for the first time, salaries that Nigerian workers earn. The survey exposed trends and patterns into how much employees in the Nigerian labour market were paid per industry, specialization, experience and gender.

We thought it fit to pioneer an investigation that will enlighten stakeholders in the labour market to take positive decisions that will enhance employee performance, organisational growth and national development.

As expected, the survey findings reported that employees in the Oil & Gas sector are the highest paid. However, human nature showed up as the report disclosed that 45.2% of those who earn above N1,000,000 per month would switch jobs immediately if they had better offers.

We did this to futhermore show our long term commitment to the growth of the recruiting industry and the Nigerian workforce. We will continually at different points provide key data, jobseeker and recruiter insights as identified and researched by our data team.

The Jobberman salary survey was conducted between October and December 2011 among over 10,000 respondents across all industries and income levels (70% male and 30% female).
