ANC battling to attract skilled staff

Johannesburg - The ANC's national headquarters, Luthuli House, is battling to recruit skilled and senior employees because of the low salaries it offers, according to a newspaper report on Wednesday.

ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe, who is also the organisation's chief administration officer, said his office did not have "capacity".

"The salary structure of the ANC cannot compete against both the public and the private sector for the best talent in the market. When we fill vacancies, we have to contend with the third or fourth-best candidates," Mantashe said in a report to the national executive committee quoted by The Star.

He said they were battling to recruit a general manager, at deputy director general level, and a senior researcher with a PhD.

"We have been looking for a general manager in the head office for some time now. But the comrades who were head-hunted could not accept our offer."
