Its a ppp arrangement which means it may turn with a new government. Depends on where the other job is located...most of the North aside the flash points is still safe.

CONRAISS 3 is the equivalent of level 10
CONRAISS1 - LEVEL8
2- level 9
3- level 10[/quot
CONRAISS started with 07 which is equivalent to GL 08.

What is the payment structure stated on the appointment letter? E.g Conhess, Conmess etc.

But that grade level 03 is for O'level certificate. Meaning that they intend to employ you with your O'level certificate only.

Your take home every months for the next three year is 33-38k.

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.

You got it wrong as well. Medical and vet docs are employ on comess 3 which is equivalent to GL12 while lawyer depend on the MDAs some place them on CONRAISS 7 equivalent to GL 08, CONTISS 8 ,=9, HESS 7 or 8 as the case may be. Op You are supposed to be placed on CONRAISS 07. I believe the sugar institute is a research institute under the ministry of Agric and Rural devt.

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.

Bro please can you link me to the North East job? I'm a graduate

I don't knw what salary structure. It's stated NSI salary scale. It's a new agency that was commissioned last month so it's hard to get relavant information on the salary structure. Parhaps when I go for my documentation
It is usually stated on the appointment letter. May I also know the designation. This will help to know if you are on grade level salary scale. Grade level 3 is a very low cadre scale for maybe SSCE O'Level.
Re: I'm Confused About The Grade Level I Was Given For A Federal Government Job by rumaabk(m): 10:48pm On Feb 22
I think the organization has their own Condition of service and salary scale difference from normal civil service. So ur salary grade is NSI 03 02.

Level 3 is for WAEC holder and your salary should be between 30 to 40k per month because the lease officer in government office (ie level 1) collect minimum wage which is 30k

CONRAISS 3 is equivalent of grade level 4. The CONRAISS equivalent of grade level is usually a number lower. An officer 11 is on grade level while that same designation is CONRAISS 7.

do you know we have salary structure like CONMESS, CONTISS, HATTISS, CONUASS and several others? some of them e.g Conuass start from 1 for graduates. grade level is completely a different salary structure. i will advice you take the job as you will be properly repositioned after documentation if that level is below your educational qualifications excluding your years of experience

Guy you are being shortchanged, they actually want you to reject the job.

Grade level 2 and 3 are grade level for cleaners and drivers.

Being a graduate you are supposed to be started at grade level 8

What they used in employing you is your first leaving certificate, if you accept the offer you won't be able to do anything to upgrade yourself. They will say you accepted the offer and signed.

I'm a federal civil servant myself. My advice for you is to reject the offer straight away.

With that grade level your salary won't be more than 30k and they will use you to do dirty jobs into late hours

Simple, the job offer is not for graduates, they just want to take advantage of job market. .
However if you summit your university certificate and it's in your file, I will advise you to take the job.
Any time you see somebody from your region or religion at the top of the organisation just go and greet him and report your case to him. If you are favoured your case will be reviewed and you will be upgraded to GL 8 or 9.
It is a simple case just make sure your certificates are your files.
Please don't miss or throw away the opportunity to enter the system.
Best of luck.
Graduates start from minimum grade level 8.
Also edit your comment and remove the name of the Ministry.

Bros cool down, u know this isn't true.

Conraiss is only different from grade by 1.
So if Someone is on grade level 10, In Conraiss he would be Conraiss 9.

u need to know the type of salary scale they use for the agency.
Starting point/scale for a new medical Doctor in federal government agency is usually conmess 3 step 3. So u need to know the scale
This is not true.
A medical officer entry point is level 12 any where. His salary structure conmess is the best any where.

Re: I'm Confused About The Grade Level I Was Given For A Federal Government Job by nitt: 12:26am On Feb 23
The salary scale should be well stated on the letter just before the Level and step you are being employed on.

Without that information you won't get a precise answer here.

What you need to do is, get the info from the organisation's staff.

Or speak up when you go for documentation and if it happens that you are employed on a grade level below a fresh graduate's Scale, then proceed to HR/Registry for complain and correction.

Congratulations and goodluck!.
