Is NPower recruitment free of charge?
Recently, someone sent me a message demanding to know if NPower recruitment is free of charge.
First and foremost, I want to clarify that the program is not targeted at making money from people. Instead, the primary aim is to provide jobs for unemployed youth and in return reduce the rate of poverty.
Based on the information we have, the registration is totally FREE.
Therefore, you must not pay attetion to anyone demanding that you pay for the form.
However, if you visit any café or shop to complete your registration, you will have to pay for the cost of the internet and other services.
In other words, any money you spend at the café to complete your registration must be the cost for accessing the net and not the cost of the form.
If you follow the steps below, then you can register by yourself using your phone or computer. That is, you don’t have to go to any cyber cafe and end up paying any money.
