Registration on the Stats SA HR Recruitment Database open

The registration process is quick and easy.

  • Select and attach proof of address
  • Complete the sections on personal information, education, language and work experience
  • Once this has been completed, you will be requested to confirm that all the information provided is correct by ticking the “I agree” box
  • After you hit the “Submit” button, you will receive an SMS confirming your registration

If you have any problems registering, please email

Stats SA wishes to emphasise that the registration process is free, and that no payment will be requested at any stage of the registration process or if you are called for employment opportunities. If you receive communications of this nature, please report it to your local authorities.
