My Dilemma As Contract Staff In A Bank by Olawrites: 7:49pm On Jun 23, 2020
Is there any future for me as a contract employee in a Nigerian bank. Pay is 60k after tax. In Lagos the cost of living is very harsh.

My dilemma is I'm not fulfilled being a contract staff. Feel like I'm wasting my youthful days. Though, I have online biz to survive on if at all I resign. I'm also building more model.

But then, I'm looking at the career prospect in the future.

I need elderly advise pls

I need front page please biko ejo

Hmmmm

It's a good thing u are'nt satisfied being a contract staff.
Even better u have an online biz as backup.

I don't know if u are the career type of person
OR
A business oriented person.

If u are business oriented person ask urself questions like :
1. Where do u see ur online business in 2-5yrs time
2. Are u ready to stick by the business no matter the challenge u face during the teething period?

If u aren't strong emotionally, going fully into ur business might bring regrets. And once u regret starting a business, it means u are left with zero zeal.

I personally chose business and investment over paid employment cos of my old age.
I will rather keep making money myself than waiting for stipends(pension).

But before u resign from ur job, kindly make sure ur online business is grounded and yielding exellent returns.

Contract Staff in a bank is corporate slavery, i don’t know why our Legislators aren’t doing anything about contract job across various industries. If you are lucky to be in a bank that has transparent conversion process for contract staff and you fall within the required age limit according to their policy, then you may be among the lucky ones to be converted to core banking staff.

You're enjoying the title of banker! grin grin

If no hope to be full time worker dey, just make sure when you leave, you take on businesses proper. Your banking experience and contracts should be able to help you in management of your business/ hustle..

All the best grin

Bank job is not as secure as your business not even to talk about being a contract staff. Please focus more on your business.
Bank can ask you to go any fucking time, its a matter of saying they are not renewing your contract

Force yourself into compulsory savings of between 10k - 20k now. This will help you to start whatever u intend to do in future. U need to know that bank won't give u anything anytime they decide to sack u. Plan your future as there's no future in contract staff job.
