Careers

Working at the municipality

Overberg District municipal employees come from a range of different backgrounds but they share a commitment to improving the quality of life for the local community. We are an equal opportunities employer and we offer corresponding salary packages.

What we value at Overberg District Municipality

As municipal employees, we ascribe to the values as underpinned by Batho Pele, a Sesotho word which means “People First”. This initiative was launched in 1997 to transform the Public Service at all levels. Batho Pele was launched because post 1994 South Africa inherited a public service that was not people-friendly and lacked the skills and attitudes to meet the developmental challenges facing the country. Batho Pele is based on the following eight principles:

  • Consultation: citizens should be consulted about their needs
  • Standards: all citizens should know what service to expect
  • Redress: all citizens should be offered an apology and solution when standards are not met
  • Access: all citizens should have equal access to services
  • Courtesy: all citizens should be treated courteously
  • Information: all citizens are entitled to full, accurate information
  • Openness and transparency: all citizens should know how decisions are made and departments are run
  • Value for money: all services provided should offer value for money
