The norm in Nigeria with regards to the recruitment of unemployed persons is that majority of recruitment agencies make promises of employment to unsuspecting job seekers which in most cases are non-existent and demand high consulting fees for such unscrupulous service. It is then crucial for companies or organizations keen on operating recruitment service as a recruitment agency or to function as a recruiter in any capacity in Nigeria to comply with the provisions of the Labour Act, CAP L1, LFN 2004, and obtain a RECRUITERS LICENSE from the Ministry of Labour and Employment.

The Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment has 2 main classes of Recruiter’s License issued to Potential Employment Agencies and Labour Contractors which includes the following:
a. Recruiters License for Domestic Operations
b. Recruiters License for International Operations

RECRUITERS LICENSE FOR DOMESTIC OPERATIONS.
This license serves the purpose of enabling its holder to carry out business as an employment agency within the sovereign territory of Nigeria.
The Domestic application Form can be downloaded from (https://labour.gov.ng/recruiters-licence/) and completed by companies seeking the License.

RECRUITERS LICENSE FOR INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS
This License enables its holder to operate an employment agency within Nigeria as well as aiding the holder to make the placement of Nigerians in jobs abroad.
The International application Form can be downloaded from (https://labour.gov.ng/recruiters-licence/) and completed by Companies seeking the License.
