EnterpriseNGR, a professional advocacy group championing the transformation of Nigeria to the premier financial services centre in Africa, plans launch of Youth of Enterprise (YOE) on Thursday 12 May 2022.

The YOE Internship Programme is designed to help address national youth unemployment and enhance Nigeria’s future productive capacity.

Currently, about 55% of unemployed Nigerians are youth aged 15 – 34 years. This is indicative of an apparent gap in youth employability that needs to be addressed.

Through the YOE Internship Programme, EnterpriseNGR seeks to improve the employability of Nigerian youth. The Programme aims to improve the skillsets, professional competence and employability of young graduates.

YOE participants will obtain invaluable workplace experience and networking opportunities which will position them for meaningful career journeys.

“We all know the difficulty young people face in finding jobs. With YOE this will be a thing of the past” said Obi Ibekwe, CEO of EnterpriseNGR.

“EnterpriseNGR is leveraging its reach to raise a network of premium organizations that are willing to offer internship opportunities to young Nigerian graduates.”

Employers participating in the YOE Internship Programme will have the opportunity to guide and evaluate placed talent for 6 (six) months before considering them for recruitment.

They will also be able to cost efficiently build a pipeline of entry-level talent, reduce the size and scope of their orientation programmes and improve the performance of their organizations by infusing fresh academic knowledge, digitization and innovation into their systems.

The YOE Internship Programme is a paid six-month programme that offers Nigerian youth the perfect opportunity to re-invent themselves and “GREENSTART” their careers.

Obi Ibekwe also said, “For our Nigerian youth, YOE is your one-stop shop for exploring pathways to the career of your dream.”

Since its launch in October 2021, EnterpriseNGR has grown its member base with top organizations in the FPS sector including Aluko & Oyebode, Chapel Hill Denham, Coronation Merchant Bank Ltd., FBNQuest Ltd., FMDQ Group, NGX Group, Tengen Family Office, PWC Nigeria, Templars, Central Securities Clearing System Plc (CSCS), Access Bank Plc., DLM Capital Ltd., Investment One Financial Services Ltd., Custodian Investment Plc., and Tangerine General Insurance Limited.

It has also garnered international attention as an FPS advocacy group in Nigeria and is currently recognized as an observer with the World Alliance of International Financial Centers (WAIFC).
