The Department of Public Service and Administration has published DPSA Circular 18 of 2023, which advertises the newest government job vacancies in South Africa as of Friday, 26 May 2023.
South Africans looking for jobs in the public service therefore have another opportunity to find positions that they could apply for. These positions are available in national departments and institutions as well as provincial administrations.
DPSA Circular 18 of 2023
If you’re searching for government job vacancies, you can find the latest available positions in DPSA Circular 18 of 2023 here. It has 291 pages and is in PDF, which means you can download it to your smartphone or computer.
If you have a specific department or province you wish to search jobs in, you can find the relevant links on the Circular 18 webpage. The links contain PDF documents truncated from the main circular, making it easier to find your preferred entity quickly.
Meanwhile, Public Service and Administration Minister Noxolo Kiviet has hailed the recently adopted Professionalisation Framework for the Public Sector as a gamechanger in the government’s pursuit of a capable and developmental state.
Addressing the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) this week, Kiviet said the Framework will ensure that the government appoints qualified and competent individuals into the public service.
“As we promote meritocracy, we are extending pre-entry examinations and competency assessments to the whole of the public service and revising the Performance Management and Development System (PMDS) for effective management of performance, productivity, and development of staff,” she added.
Therefore, if you have found a vacancy in Circular 18 that you could apply for, it is important to be as detailed as possible regarding your qualifications and competencies. Providing as much truthful information as possible on form Z83 and on your CV will therefore maximise your chances.
Additionally, check the job advertisement carefully to see if the position requires a pre-entry certificate. If yes, make sure to register for the pre-entry course with the National School of Government and to attach proof of registration to your application.
