Career Overview at NIMC
A career with the National Identity Management Commission could be both tasking and interesting as given pressure on the commission to enroll millions of Nigerians to the National Identity Database, though it may reduce overtime. NIMC deploys its personnel into various departments to enforce the policies below:
- Regulations on the mandatory use of the National Identification Number (NIN)
- Regulations on access to registered information in the National Identity Database
- Regulations on registration of persons and contents of National Identity Database (NID)
- Harmonization and integration policy.
Presently, working condition in NIMC is not that impressive as workers are agitating for better working condition that even almost resulted in a strike action. But things could soon change as authorities have learned ear to their plights.
In order to successfully carry out its functions, NIMC is structured into the following departments:
- Research/ISRM DGM
- Budget Department
- Strategy and Programme Office
- Inspectorate and Enforcement Depart

NIMC Salary Structure
The specific salary scale of NIMC staff is not readily ascertained as information about that is unavailable on the commission’s website and elsewhere upon my research. However, an analysis on mysalaryscale.com estimates an average salary of NIMC employees to be from N77, 728 and above for staff at various levels from Graduate Grade Level O8.
Nonetheless, from my extensive research in other federal government agencies, NIMC salary structure will be similar or close to what other MDA’s in the country earn which is approximately the same with the above figure.
