Requirements to work at the IEC

Because of the nature of its work as per the Constitution, the IEC has rather stringent requirements you must meet before being allowed to work at the Commission. These include:

South African Citizenship: Being a South African citizen is fundamental, as this work directly impacts the country’s democratic processes. It ensures that those involved in facilitating elections have a vested interest in the nation’s democratic integrity.

Registered Voter: Candidates must be registered voters, demonstrating a personal commitment to the democratic process. This requirement reinforces the importance of understanding and participating in the electoral system one will be supporting.

Political Neutrality: To preserve the IEC’s impartiality, candidates must not have held political office, been political candidates, or been actively involved in political campaigns within the last five years. This criterion ensures that the IEC staff can carry out their duties without bias or conflict of interest.
