We use an online application system for our vacancies. We are currently working on phasing out of the current e-recruitment system (i.e., HRSmart) and phasing in an e-recruitment system which is embedded in Integrated Tertiary Software (ITS). As part of the transitioning process, certain jobs will be placed on the current e-recruitment system and others on the new system.

NB: The data in the old system will not be carried over to the new e-recruitment. As such, potential applicants and those who previously had their credentials registered in the to be phase out e-recruitment system (i.e., HRSmart) are requested to (re-) register their credentials in the new system when applying for vacant positions posted on that platform.
