Employer: Rhodes University: Faculty of Law
Location: Eastern Cape
Salary: Cost to company approximately: R530 140.00
Date posted: 16 Jan 2019

Job Description:

Recognising that diversity is important in achieving excellence, Rhodes University especially encourages South African members of underrepresented designated groups to apply. Spouses and Partners of existing staff members are also encouraged to apply.

Please note that this appointment will be made in line with the requirements of the Employment Equity Act of RSA and the University’s recruitment and selection policies and equity strategies. The initial focus will be on equity candidates.

In terms of Immigration Legislation (Act No. 13 of 2002 & Regulations), international staff members (non-SA citizens) have to comply with the provisions of the Act. This therefore means that the period of employment to non-SA citizens will be guided by the validity period of the work permit.  In line with legislation governing employment of foreign nationals, employment contracts will be offered on the basis that a development plan would be implemented for the transfer of skills to a South African resident. The onus is on candidates to ensure that they are in possession of a valid work permit before the commencement of employment at the University, failing which the employment with Rhodes University will be terminated.

NB: Preference will be given to candidates from the designated group and Rhodes University reserves the right to re-advertise if no suitably qualified South African Black applicant is recommended for appointment.

Partners and spouses of Rhodes University staff are encouraged to apply.


Lecturer Level: At least an LLM degree, normally preceded by a LLB degree from a South African university. Tutoring or facilitation experience and commitment to a career in academia is required. Interest and/or expertise in adjectival law, and experience as a legal practitioner will be a distinct advantage.

VERY IMPORTANT: The system DOES NOT allow for multiple attachments and please ensure that your attachments do not exceed a size limit of 2MB. This means that candidates should submit all the documentation (CV, Letter of Motivation, Application Form, Qualifications) as one pdf attachment for each application i.e. an application form, a letter of motivation which clearly indicates the level they are applying for, a comprehensive CV and relevant certificates including academic transcripts.

If you have any questions or experience challenges with the system, please contact Ms Lesleigh Titus on 046 603 8971 or Ms Rikashni Nagar on 046 6037265.
