Jobs in the circular range from senior management to entry level positions. They are also spread across national departments and provincial governments across South Africa.

In case you wish to view vacancies in a particular department or provincial government, visit a separate DPSA webpage here. It displays separate links to advertisements in 19 national departments and five provinces.
Funded courses for public servants
Meanwhile, the DPSA has announced the rollout of funded courses for public servants which the National School of Government will administer at no cost to government departments.
“Government is serious about building a capable state and a public service that has the requisite skills to serve the public efficiently, effectively and with courtesy,” Acting Public Service and Administration Minister Thulas Nxesi said in a statement this week.
“We will continue to invest in the training and development of public servants so that they can fulfil their tasks empowered by the necessary knowledge and expertise. We invite government departments in the three spheres to make use of this opportunity and enrol officials for this much-needed training.”
The courses include:
- Citizen-centred Service Delivery
- Art of Facilitation for progressive realisation of socio-economic rights
- Art of Facilitating Participatory Community Engagement
- Youth Development (Personal Mastery)
- Supply Chain Management for Public Service
- Avoiding Irregular, Fruitless and Wasteful Expenditure
- Programme and Project Management
- Coaching for Leadership Development
- Evidence-Based Policy Making and Implementation
DPSA advised public servants interested in any of the above-listed courses to direct their inquiries to email@example.com. The courses will be allocated and shared per province and national departments.
Public Service Month 2022
In another development, Nxesi launched the Public Service Month 2022 at Freedom Park in Pretoria on Thursday (1 September). The month-long event is held every September to highlight service delivery issues across all spheres of government.
In his keynote address, Nxesi emphasised that the public service has skilled, competent and resourceful officials.
“We have seen the remarkable progress made in service delivery since democratisation in 1994, and more so, since the Batho Pele programme was introduced in 1997,” the Minister added.
