The South African Social Security Agency has been financially assisting millions of South Africans since it was established in 2006. If you’d like to join this government entity, here’s how you can find job vacancies.
Since the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) is a government entity, you have to make use of official government channels to see vacancies that have been published.
On a weekly basis, the Department of Public Service (DPSA) publishes advertisements of vacant posts and jobs in Public Service departments in all nine provinces.
Here you will find vacancies in the Department of Social Development, however, Sassa vacancies may be found by following these three steps:
- Type out Sassa careers on your search engine and click on enter.
- Click on the first result, which will be written as Sassa vacancies.
- Click on the province of your choice.
On the vacancy advertisement, you will be able to see what are the job requirements, duties, salary and who to contact for enquiries regarding this advert.
It is important that you make sure that you meet the minimum requirements and that you have the latest Z83 form fully completed and signed.
According to Sassa, appointments for their vacancies are subjected to compulsory pre-employment screening in the form of qualification, reference, ITC, criminal checks and compulsory competency assessment (where applicable).
Applicants are only required to submit copies of their documents, such as a copy of highest qualifications, ID, driver’s license and updated detailed comprehensive CV with all experience, duties, indicating the dates (MM/YY), identity number, Race and Gender as well as references with full contact details.
In order to alleviate the administrative burden on Human Resource sections, as well as cost for applicants, departments are encouraged to request certified copies of educational qualifications and other relevant documents only from shortlisted candidates, said DPSA Acting Director-General, Linda Dludla.
