Professional opportunities within the armed forces allow individuals to take part in making a living through serving their fellow countrymen and making a difference in the world. There are job opportunities for those interested in joining the SA Navy or Defence Force.

The salaries of South Africa’s soldiers will be adjusted to recognise years of service in an effort to improve their low salaries and boost morale in the military, Defence and Military Veterans Minister Lindiwe Sisulu announced.


The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) is keeping up with the times by increasing the number of technologically skilled personnel among its ranks.



Recruitment for the military services is handled by the Directorate Human Resource Acquisition (DHRACQ), which is part of the Defence Department. The following services are represented under the DHRACQ: Army, Air Force, Navy and Military Service.


A total of 4463 new South African National Defence Force (SANDF) recruits will begin their training this month.

Many of the recruits have started to report at various SANDF Military Bases, while over 1000 of them are expected to assemble at the Johannesburg Park Station for final instructions before being ferried to various military bases.

The new recruits will undergo various training aimed to providing specialists to the SANDF such as engineers, pilots, doctors, dentists and naval combat officers.
