The Western Cape Education Department has published a list of promotional posts. This Vacancy List 2 of 2021 contains advertisements for principals, deputy principals, departmental heads, education counsellors and education therapist posts.
All applicants need to be registered on the Western Cape Education Department’s eRecruitment System to be able to apply for any post.
The system is dependent on candidates capturing their personal information online before applying for posts in order for the system to generate the candidate’s curriculum vitae (CV).
Candidates must ensure that they capture at least three contactable referees.
The CVs are stored online and may be edited online.
For each application submitted, the system will immediately generate a letter (email) acknowledging receipt of an application for a post.
Applicants who have a PERSAL number must ensure that it is captured when registering on the system. The system will allocate a unique identification number for applicants that do not have a PERSAL number.
Applicants must be sure to click the correct advertisement number when applying for a post online.
Based on feedback received from users, the WCED implemented enhancements to the E-Recruitment system, specifically on the Employment History and Experience Set Fields.
The WCED does not accept responsibility for applicants applying for incorrect posts.
Hard-copy applications and applications sent by fax will not be considered.
Communication will be limited to those applicants who are shortlisted. Should a shortlisted applicant be in possession of a foreign qualification, the relevant evaluation certificate from the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) is required.
The closing time and date for the capturing of applications is 24:00 (midnight) on 18 March 2021. The WCED does not accept responsibility for applications that are not captured in time and will not consider late applications.
Applicants must note that CVs and supporting documents must not be uploaded onto the system. The system will generate a CV based on the information captured in the applicant’s online profile.
