Where to find departmental posts in South Africa

Finding a permanent departmental post in South Africa can be difficult. When vacancies arise during the school year, and temporary as well as contract positions open at schools, many schools advertise on RSA Teaching Jobs. The provincial Departments of Education, however, has their own vacancy lists that can be accessed at various times per year.

The Western Cape Education Department is the only department that has an online application system for post level 1 teachers, as well as all other post levels and office-based employees. For the other provinces, you’ll have to wait for it to be released as a PDF on the relevant Department’s website.

Here is a list of all the Provincial Education Departments’ vacancies pages:
