Home Affairs is HIRING 10 000 unemployed graduates – HERE’S the salary!

Home Affairs minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi has announced that his department is looking to recruit 10 000 unemployed graduates for the digitisation of its civic paper records over the next three years.


The department is reportedly clogged by more than 350 million civic paper records detailing births, marriages, deaths, and amendments dating back well over a century to 1895!

The lack of digital copies of these records results in frustrating delays for South African applicants.

“Quite often, South Africans complain bitterly about the delays they experience when they apply for unabridged birth certificates, unabridged marriage certificates, amendments, and rectification of their biographic details,” Motsoaledi said during a media briefing on Thursday.

“This is because to finalise all these applications, Home Affairs officials have to manually search for original documents among these 350 million manual records. Obviously, such a tedious process will take a long time, which people may not be aware of. This leads to frustration when people have to make several visits to Home Affairs.”

To resolve the problem, the department has committed to hiring 10 000 unemployed graduates who will be tasked with digitising these paper documents.

These graduates should be qualified in Information Technology – specifically, document, information, and records management – obtained from institutions of higher learning.

The recruitment will be carried out in phases.

  • Phase 1 will see the recruitment of the first intake of 2 000 unemployed youth graduates.

The adverts for this phase will be available from TODAY, 12 August 2022. This group will assume duty on 1 November 2022.

  • Phase 2 will see further recruitment of 4 000 unemployed young graduates. The adverts for this phase will be placed during October 2022. This cohort will assume duty in January 2023.
  • Phase 3 will see a further and last recruitment of 4 000 unemployed youth graduates. The adverts for this phase will be placed during December 2022 and January 2023. This cohort will assume duty in April 2023.

Motsoaledi confirmed that the project would run until October 2025.

“In this month of women, and to honour the heroines of the 1956 march to the Union Buildings, we wish to announce that 60% of the intake will be of young women and only 40% will be young men,” Motsoaledi added.

How much will you be paid?

Those successful graduates will be paid a stipend ranging from R5 000 for entry-level positions to R9 500 for technical support level positions, and R14 250 for manager-level positions.

Those interested can register and apply online through the DHA and DEL websites. Those who do not have access to the internet can visit their closest Labour Centre of the Department of Employment and Labour.
