Correctional Services hosts Job Fairs Operation Hira

Opportunities

Human Capital is a key ingredient in the administration of DCS. This is a labour-intensive organisation whose ability to realise its Vision, Mission and Strategic Objectives is directly related to the extent to which it is able to have the RIGHT PERSONS, at the RIGHT TIME, doing the RIGHT THINGS.

As part of its recently-launched Operation Hira campaign, the Department will be hosting Job Fairs as part of its ongoing efforts to intensify the recruitment of suitably qualified professionals to fill vacancies in the scarce and critical skills job categories in order to deliver on its mandate.

These Job Fairs will serve as a platform to highlight employment and career opportunities within the Department in the various professional fields of study.

The recruitment of these professionals will go a long way towards improving government’s capacity to deliver services.

Through this intervention, the Department is also responding to the call by government to create employment and thereby contributing towards the reduction of unemployment in the country.

The Department is therefore hereby inviting potential candidates to attend the Job Fairs. During the Job Fairs, applications will be processed, and qualifying candidates will be taken through preliminary interviews.

The Job Fair will commence at 08h00 and conclude at 17h00 on both days. Kindly note that access will be limited to applicants with qualifications in the identified occupations.
