Human Capital Providers Association of Nigeria (HuCaPAN) is the umbrella organisation of registered/licenced recruiters in Nigeria, also referred to as Private Employment Agencies (PEAs). The aims and objectives of the Association, among others, are to develop and promote International Labour Organisation (ILO) Standards and ethical practices in Recruitment, Deployment and Management of outsourced personnel in Nigeria.
The Association was midwifed by the Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA) and the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, with international guidelines from the ILO.
HuCaPAN was established to provide an interface through which government agencies and relevant authorities can consult and relate with providers of outsourced personnel. The Association is a dynamic and highly respected professional body of all Private Employment Agencies (PEAs) in Nigeria. HuCaPAN is registered under the Company and Allied Matters Act 1990. The Association is an affiliate member of the Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA) and it is being registered as an Employers Union.
The Association has a membership strength of over 150 companies distributed across Nigeria. Our members are guided by Employment and Labour Laws in Nigeria, ILO Conventions, and the Code of Conduct for Private Employment Agencies, which was developed with support and technical inputs from the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, NECA, ILO; and an Ethics Committee that works with the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.
