Government to recruit skilled South Africans working abroad
Government says it is looking to recruit about 400 engineers from outside SA to help implement and manage the country’s infrastructure investment programme. According to Business Day, most of the recruits will be South Africans currently working abroad. Public Enterprises Minister Alec Erwin says Eskom and Transnet will hire most of the recruits, as the government seeks to accelerate its multi-billion rand infrastructure development programme. Last week Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said that Eskom and Transnet have already identified at least 200 skilled professionals who fit the profile of the people required.
