The HEJobs website was designed to enable all higher education institutions in South Africa to post their job adverts on a centralised higher education jobs portal. HEJobs serves as a dedicated higher education recruitment center. It is an ideal site for finding qualified academics. It is a meeting place for all higher education professionals seeking a new academic career and institutions looking to fill higher education job openings.
By providing anywhere, anytime access to online jobs and professional CVs; a superior and easy to utilise search facility we hope to add great value to both institutions search efforts / capacity and to academics careers.
Currently universities’ corporate websites and their job announcements are forced together out of necessity – which in many cases loses momentum as one has to go through the general landing page first and then start looking for careers section, which in many cases are referred to in multiple terms or just differently named from one institution to the next. On this site, job postings will not be tied to all information about the institution. This dedicated site will make it easier for higher education candidates and employers to connect with one another to find their dream job, or employee, as quickly as possible with the least amount of effort.
Through the portal we foresee a vibrant single web-based facility for institutions and job seekers alike in the higher education sector. By providing anywhere, anytime access to online jobs and professional CVs; a superior and easy to utilise search facility we hope to add great value to both institutions search efforts / capacity and to job seekers careers.
HEJobs does not seek to replace existing recruitment processes at universities, but instead to complement these. For instance if a university makes use of recruitment agencies, they will still be able to post their vacancy on HEJobs and link to the mainstream job application system.
