NSSF is a body mandated to collect pension and retirement benefits in Kenya. Careers available at the company are mostly targeting senior managers and interns.
To be honest, NSSF is one of many government organizations that rarely recruit graduates. In a single year, the institution can advertise a single job opportunity, which targets a senior employee who is going for retirement or an intern. Surprisingly, hundreds of fresh graduates and experienced employees join NSSF yearly. How does this company recruit?
NSSF employs through referrals, I mean if a “big person” in government notices an opportunity at the institution, he will refer his son or a relative to NSSF.This is the most commonly used method of employment at NSSF.
The second way of employing is advertising jobs through their website. But I can assure you, if you rely on this, you will wait until the end of the world.
The third one entails a job seeker dropping a CV at NSSF offices in Upper Hill. This is the most effective way of looking for a job at NSSF.
