Stutern and Jobberman partner to address Youth Unemployment through Internships

Lagos, Nigeria – February 10, 2016: Today, Stutern, Nigeria’s largest internship marketplace strategically partners with Jobberman, the largest jobs platform in sub-Saharan Africa, where Stutern will become the exclusive partner of Jobberman for internship placements.

Jobberman will open up access to its 45,000+ employer relationships for Stutern’s use and put its marketing power behind Stutern as it intensifies the provision of internship opportunities to undergraduates, NYSC corpers and recent graduates in Nigeria. Financial details of the partnership are undisclosed.

“We have one focus. It is internships. Get experience, get skills, get paid.” said Taiwo Ayanleye, co-founder at Stutern. “An interesting thing about our vision at Stutern is that our solution for Nigeria will be expanding to other emerging economies and that’s why we are excited about a partnership with Jobberman. And that is where we are headed.”

Emphasizing more on the need for internship culture, Kehinde Ayanleye, co-founder of Stutern said “With the overspilling increase of unemployable graduates that are chunked out yearly, encouraging an internship culture is the only solution that the employers can truly and fully nurture for developing employable talents for themselves and peace for the nation.”

This new partnership builds on the crucial support and investment Stutern received upon joining Co-creation Hub’s Pre-incubation program in January 2015. “We were able to build, launch and test the solution and figure out the business model starting with the tech startup community in Yaba.”, said the co-founders of Stutern.

“We are happy to have Stutern on board as a partner company. Employment and Employability are very huge problems in developing countries and we need to attack them from different angles. This partnership will enable us to do more faster.”, Opeyemi Awoyemi, co-founder Jobberman said.

Also, Stutern will be announcing shortly a couple of partnerships with universities and leading government organizations in order to intensify their reach to undergraduates for IT/SIWES across Nigeria.

    Good day

    I did visit your site and I’d say it’s lovely and the idea behind it is commendable. Nigeria really does need an internship culture so as to equip students(secondary school alike) with hands-on experience and work ethic.

    However, it doesn’t seem to offer a variety of fields for students in tertiary institutions. E.g, there’s no field/role for Food Science Technology, Biochemistry,Microbiology, Chemistry, Biotechnology etc.
    My questions thus:

    Do/Can you offer internships placements for students who major in the aforementioned disciplines(this includes your Stutern+)? If yes, how do applicants go about it?

    Thank you.

    Hi Uchechi,

    Thank you for reaching out and for the kind compliment. We have a number if this positions as well, although, they are offered only to Stutern+ members for now.

    Understood. I’d definitely apply(stutern+) on time for my internship program.

    Thanks for the response.
