Municipalities fill more posts

Johannesburg - Municipalities had been filling more and more key function posts in the past 10 years, SA Local Government Association (Salga) chairperson Amos Masondo said on Thursday.

These posts were for engineers, planners, managers and chief financial officers, he said after a local government human resources conference.

Municipalities had to put emphasis on the recruitment of competent and suitably qualified people to execute core functions, he said.

"The recruitment must also consider values, ethics and customer orientation."

The conference in Polokwane, Limpopo, aimed to give municipalities a platform to consider and discuss identified best practice, to help craft Salga’s human resource strategy and reflect on the implications of the local government turnaround strategy on human resources management.

Database

Masondo said a database of competent personnel would be made available to municipalities to help them recruit qualified individuals.

An assessment centre to support municipalities in maintaining uniform norms and standard on recruitment would also be established.

Salga deputy chair Sophie Molokoane-Machika said it had been proposed that an incentive scheme be established to help rural municipalities to recruit suitably qualified individuals.

To function properly, municipalities had to have at a municipal manager, chief financial officer, engineer, planner, communicator and human resources manager.

Masondo said Salga would also explore the possibility of various medical aid and pension fund schemes to maximise value for municipal workers.
