as far Nigeria concerned. They might have employed a less qualified peep for the post u interviewed for and den employed the more qualified candidate as his junior officer, so u can do the work while the person rakes the pay.

On a serious note, Ur offer should come with all the details u need. Ur salary, upfront, quarterly and any other fringe benefits.
Just follow dem small small till u get ur pay grade from official source first.

Hello everyone, please I need your opinion on this issues. I got an employment letter for federal government job I interviewed for last year. During the interview the panel actually told me I am way too qualified for the position they are interviewing me for to which I replied them I will take the offer as long as I can progress and grow through the ranks and they told me that they loved my reply that that was what they were expecting me to say.

Today, I received a mail containing my appointment letter and I see the gave me grade level 3 step 2. Although it is a newly commissioned government agency and I am a university graduate with about 5 years work experience. Now I am confused with the grade level I am being offered.

Secondary, I currently have another appointment letter with a private company lacated in the north east, the salary is good with allowance and the working condition is not so bad, I would have loved to take that offer but the location is not favorable to me as my family is scattered between the north west and south west so going to the north east to work will be a difficult thing for me.

I'll be glad if I could get your opinions on this, I don't know how much the Government job would pay yet.

What sort of misinformation is this?
A University graduate in any federal parastatal today will either be employed with Conraiss 7 which is same as level 8 depending on the salary scale of the place.
If it's Law or Medicine or vet medicine, she gets to be placed on level9 direct.
Level 3 is for school cert holders.
That's to say our darling Holy president who is working with school cert is a level 3 worker?

Take the North East job.

Lemme just make some mouths water.

If it is what i think it is.... It was almost 20 times minimum wage.

Coincidentally, I had a similar decision to make 7 years back. I chose the North East and I have zero reasons to regret. 20 to 50.

PS- Collect first salary before making a decision as someone has said. Leave that "family" thing out of your decision-making.

No one likes a brokeass, siblings and parents alike.

The End. wink

CONDITIONS OF SERVICE

Basic salary per/annum - #320,000 do not ask me how I arrived at that. (Other allowances will be paid alongside)

You will be entitled to 30 days paid leave period

If the agency is revenue generating agency, you will be entitled to 13th month and outfit allowance.

At every JANUARY 1st, your step will increase by 1

Your promotion will be every 5 years

2 years after the confirmation of your appointment, you are qualified to seek approval to further your education.

If you are cool with the conditions of service, you may sign the dotted line.

You have been employed on a special scale. Not the conventional federal civil service scale. Wait to collect your first salary before you make the wrong move. Otherwise get someone working in the establishment to request more information.
Congrats & best of luck.

I did already. I expect his feed back tomorrow. Thanks

It might not be the general civil service scale, check the salary first , it should be on the same letter.

Also go to the organization and ask questions/ complain. Haba.

It might even be a typo, stranger things have happened.
