Jobs and careers

Most of Unisa’s recruitment processes are centralised at our Head Office in Pretoria. The recruitment process takes approximately 90 working days to complete. Applicants not contacted during this period need not be disheartened, as Unisa advertises its positions on an ongoing basis.

We strive to make the process of applying for positions at Unisa less cumbersome to prospective applicants. To this end the process is constantly being reviewed to keep pace with best practice. Prospective employees will be able to apply for positions in two ways: online on I-Recruitment or manually (by post or hand delivered).

If you believe that you are ready for a stimulating environment and thrive in innovation then Unisa may be the employer for you.
