About the Department of Public Enterprises
Established in 1994, the Office of the Public Enterprises is responsible for advocating and directing the reorganization of state-owned companies (SOCs) and ensuring their ideal developmental and economic impact. In 1999, a Cabinet decision to speed up SOE restructuring efforts transformed the OPE into what is now the Department of Public Enterprises.
As a shareholder representative for the South African government, the DPE is in charge of some SOCs operating in key sectors of the economy including defense, mining, logistics, and energy, to name a few. Moreover, the DPE is the main interface linking the Government and SOCs in addition to providing oversight and delivering input essential to regulation, legislation, and policymaking.

Successful candidates will be signing a 12-month contract that runs in line with the current financial year.
