Nigeria Job Listings

Home to the largest population of any country in Africa, Nigeria has turned into something of an economic and cultural driving force for the entire continent.

Like most African countries, Nigeria has a colonial past, but is fast moving forward on the world stage and developing rapidly in economic terms, whilst also staying true to its strong and colourful identity. Powered by large oil reserves, Nigeria is trying to show Africa what is possible for its people when they work together. The country is fortunate to have a government that is now trying to use its oil wealth to boost the standards of living of its people, and also the quality of education and the numbers of its youth attending school.

If you are a TEFL teacher, then you have the chance to play a large part in the future of this developing nation. Away from teaching, you also have the opportunity to experience something very different from most other TEFL destinations. Experience the best of modern Africa in Lagos, the capital of Nigeria, with high-end restaurants, a cutting-edge music scene and a unique and growing art scene. Whilst there is a large expat community in Lagos, nothing beats meeting the friendly locals and learning about their culture and spirit. Sitting down in a local restaurant, you can experience a flavourful and spicy cuisine that will keep you coming back for more.

Away from the city, Nigeria is blessed with a surprisingly beautiful and lush landscape that is definitely worth taking the time to explore. It is currently recommended to stay clear of the northern and central regions of the country, but there is plenty to enjoy in the south. Head to the Atlantic coast and you will feel the magnetic pull of the beach and water. Enjoy African wildlife in a nature reserve or head to the mountains for some trekking.

Although English is the national language of Nigeria, it is a country that is home to over 500 spoken languages and so there is still a demand for TEFL teachers and learning English. Many of the jobs are volunteer positions with a good stipend to help you survive, but paid employment is also available. If you have some experience as an English teacher, then there are also EFL and ESL jobs that can be found at any one of the international schools within the country.

Being smart about where you look for work can pay dividends, for example, if you have experience of the British curriculum, then you would have an advantage in applying for a job at a British international school. The best jobs in Nigeria for those holding a TEFL qualification can even provide benefits such as airfares, health insurance and accommodation, so try to be patient in your search.

TEFL opportunities in Nigeria can be exciting and interesting work, with students being very active in class whilst still holding respect for the teacher. Expect classes to be large and to have to make do with a lack of resources.
