Recruitment in government departments across South Africa seems to have picked up dramatically if the DPSA Circular 41 of 2022 is anything to go by.
The weekly circular publishes the latest public service vacancies along with directions of how applicants should apply for the available jobs.
Latest vacancies in DPSA Circular 41 of 2022
If you’re looking for the latest vacancies in the public service as of Friday, 28 October 2022, you can view them in DPSA Circular 41 of 2022 which is available on the DPSA’s website.
The circular, which you can also download as PDF, is a whopping 305 pages long. This indicates that there is a high number of government job vacancies being advertised across the country.
Because the document is bulky, applicants can zoom their search to a particular department by visiting the DPSA’s newsroom. This is where the Department of Public Service and Administration has published separate links to each entity for this particular circular.
This allows applicants to quickly find their preferred department and click its link to see the available positions. “Applicants must indicate the reference number of the vacancy in their applications. It must be ensured that applications reach the relevant advertising departments on or before the applicable closing dates,” DPSA said.
Tightening of pre-entry requirements
This follows the Cabinet’s approval of the National Framework Towards the Professionalisation of Public Sector last week.
“The pre-entry to senior management course (Nyukela) will be reviewed and extended to employees in the Defence Services, State Security, Police and Correctional Services, Local Government and to prospective Boards of SOEs,” Nxesi said.
“The Nyukela course will also now be extended to middle management in the public sector. Staff appointed into Political Offices (including Advisors) must also complete Nyukela, pre-entry competency and integrity assessments within 60 days of appointment into office.”
Additionally, the government will introduce compulsory integrity assessments as well as induction and onboarding programmes for public servants.
“The Professionalisation Framework introduces participation in induction programmes before assuming duty, including in Local Government, Boards of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs), the Defence, State Security, Police and Correctional Services,” Nxesi added.
