Z83 form

The Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) announced that job applicants are no longer required to submit certified copies of their educational qualifications and other relevant documents on their applications. 

This will cut the price of looking for a job when applying to work for the state. 

In 2019, the South African government employed around 13% of all workers in the country in national, provincial and local government departments, universities, technikons and extra-budgetary institutions.  

The State also employed 1.2 million full-time equivalent employees in the 2018/19 financial year. This does not include temporary workers who receive fewer than 12 salaries per year.
