Recognising that diversity is important in achieving excellence, Rhodes University especially encourages South African members of underrepresented designated groups to apply. Spouses and Partners of existing staff members are also encouraged to apply.
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.
A relevant Bachelor’s Degree plus 7 years’ relevant experience.  It is recognized that relevant experience in this field can be gained in many ways, and is often gained concomitantly with formal education.  Relevant experience is:

  • At least three years in an environment with a network of similar complexity/scale to Rhodes (e.g. an ISP with a large number of customers, or a large corporate or school network).
  • At least 1 years’ supervision experience OR be in possession of an RU Supervision Certificate.
