The latest DPSA Circular 19 of 2023 is now available to download as a PDF document after the Department of Public Service and Administration published it on Friday, 2 June.
Job seekers in South Africa can expect to view a DPSA vacancies circular every Friday of the week throughout the year, except during holidays and the festive season.
Latest DPSA Circular 19 of 2023
You can download the latest DPSA Circular 19 of 2023 as a PDF document from the DPSA’s website. It has more than 200 pages of government jobs available.
Alternatively, visit the DPSA’s newsroom page to view links to shorter documents from the circular for each department or province that has advertised vacant job positions. This can save you time if you only wish to search jobs in a preferred province or department.
As recruitment into the public service continues, the DPSA has identified three priorities in its objective of professionalising the public sector. These include:
- Completing lifestyle audits for senior public servants.
- Conducting skills audits.
- Establishing a single register for disciplinary cases.
“We are conducting a full skills audit throughout the public service, which will include qualifications, skills, competencies, and the correct location of skills,” Public Service and Administration Minister Noxolo Kiviet said during her Budget Vote speech in Parliament last week.
If you’re an applicant for a job in the public service, it is therefore important to brush up your CV to fully reflect your skills, competencies, qualifications and experience. This would be important not only for your application, but also for future career advancement once you clinch a job in government.
To see how best to capture all your details on form Z83 during your application read the DPSA’s practice note to all departments. It explains which parts of the form you must fill in full and the exceptions that departments may consider.
For example, the practice note says applicants can indicate “refer to Curriculum Vitae (CV) or see attached” while filling parts E, F and G on form Z83. Always ensure that you have attached your CV and that it provides the required information; otherwise, the human resource sections will disqualify your application.
