George 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 George 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:
All citizens should be consulted about their needs;
All citizens should know what service to expect;
All citizens should be offered an apology and solution when standards are not met;
All citizens should have equal access to services;
All citizens should be treated courteously;
All citizens are entitled to full, accurate information;
Openness and transparency:
All citizens should know how decisions are made and departments are run and
Value for money:
All services provided should offer value for money.
