The year may be winding down, but the South African government isn’t slowing down its recruitment – with the latest DPSA Circular 46 of 2022 containing a whopping 400 pages of the latest job vacancies as of 2 December.
“This circular is, except during December, published on a weekly basis and contains the advertisements of vacant posts and jobs in Public Service departments,” the Department of Public Service and Administration says in the circular.
DPSA Circular 46 of 2022
If you’re looking for the latest government job vacancies in South Africa, you can peruse or download DPSA Circular 46 of 2022 in PDF on the Department’s website.
All provinces have advertised vacant positions this week except Northern Cape and Limpopo. Additionally, a massive 25 national departments and institutions are also recruiting, including the Presidency, Office of the Chief Justice and the National Prosecuting Authority.
The 400-page document may be bulky to peruse, so of you have a preferred department, institution or province you would like to search jobs in, visit the DPSA’s circular 46 page.
On that page, the DPSA has provided links to PDF sections for each entity that made advertisements. All you need to do is click on the link of your preferred entity to view or download the document containing those vacancy adverts.
Once you identify a position you would like to apply for, keep in mind the following points as advised by DPSA:
- Submit your application on the official Z83 form (it is permissible to attach your CV or extra information sheet if the form is not sufficient to capture all your details).
- Send your inquiries about a job to the entity making the advertisement, not the DPSA.
- Submit your application on time and to the relevant entity, not the DPSA.
- Use the correct reference number for your application as indicated in the circular.
The increased government recruitment comes soon after Statistic South Africa announced that the economy had created 204,000 jobs in the third quarter of 2022.
It is hoped that this trend would continue in order to reduce the unemployment rate in South Africa. All the best in your job hunt!
