Please note that this appointment will be made in line with the requirements of the Employment Equity Act of RSA and the University’s recruitment and selection policies and equity strategies. The initial focus will be on equity candidates.

In terms of Immigration Legislation (Act No. 13 of 2002 & Regulations), international staff members (non-SA citizens) have to comply with the provisions of the Act. This therefore means that the period of employment to non-SA citizens will be guided by the validity period of the work permit.  In line with legislation governing employment of foreign nationals, employment contracts will be offered on the basis that a development plan would be implemented for the transfer of skills to a South African resident. The onus is on candidates to ensure that they are in possession of a valid work permit before the commencement of employment at the University, failing which the employment with Rhodes University will be terminated.

VERY IMPORTANT: The system DOES NOT allow for multiple attachments. This means that candidates should submit all the documentation as one attachment for each application i.e. An application form, a letter of motivation which clearly indicates the level they are applying for, a comprehensive CV and relevant qualifications including academic transcripts.

If you have any questions or experiencing challenges on the system, please contact Ms Ntosh Gongqa on 046 603 8616 or jobs-red@ru.ac.za
