At City of Johannesburg, our success is dependent on our people and the community we serve. We can only succeed when the society we serve flourishes.​


That's why we are committed to fostering a diverse workforce by creating a collaborative, equitable, and inclusive organisation where everyone, regardless of colour, ethnic culture, gender, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, political opinion, or social origin, what we look like, where we come from or who we love, has a voice.


We believe in work-life balance and have implemented our new council-approved Hybrid Working Policy; it is the first of its kind for any city or government in South Africa. It will allow those employees who are not required on the frontline of service delivery to execute their daily responsibilities with flexibility as they contribute towards Johannesburg's Golden Repair. The policy is based on international best practices and aims to increase the productivity and morale of employees while reducing costs and the city's carbon footprint.
