Upon the completion of the deal, both companies will continue to operate independently under parent company, ROAM Africa. However, according to the company, the goal is for both organisation to function solely under Jobberman.

The companies achieve this by providing millions of young people access to career development tools, opportunities, professional, and vocational skill development.
With the acquisition, Jobberman Nigeria and Ngcareers aim to reach more than one million Nigerians every month. It will also help Ringier One Africa Media, Africa (ROAM), the owner of Jobberman Nigeria to further consolidate the Nigerian job market.
“Ngcareers is one of the top job portals in Nigeria. With this acquisition, we have the opportunity to widen our scope in Nigeria and show our long-term commitment to the market. It will give us a stronger bigger platform and enable us to create better digital services for our customers,” says Hilda Kabushenga Kragha, CEO of Jobberman Nigeria.
Paul Eze, co-founder and CEO of Ngcareers also has this to say about the acquisition:
“After a thorough evaluation of the different strategic options for Ngcareers, we are pleased to divest this successful business to Jobberman Nigeria, a strategic and committed owner.”
