The DA has launched a countrywide campaign to attract hard-working and enthusiastic South Africans, who are committed to a better future for this country, to stand as Members of Parliament and Provincial Legislatures in the 2014 National and Provincial elections.
The DA is already growing its own timber through various initiatives such as the DA Young Leaders Programme, our Young Professionals Network as well as our political and operational structures. In addition, we want to offer all South Africans who share our values the opportunity to help us bring positive change to our country.
We are looking for people who have:
A commitment to the DA's principles, policies and programme of action
An understanding of the DA's vision of an Open, Opportunity Society for All
Leadership skills and the ability to maintain effective working relationships
Excellent communication and writing skills
Sound political judgement and the ability to identify key issues
Proficiency in more than one language
The ability to work energetically around a demanding schedule
Interested parties can find out more on the 'Get Involved' section of www.da.org.za by clicking on "Jobs at the DA". We have also posted information on the DA's Facebook and Twitter page (@DA_News) and have initiated a national newspaper advertising campaign in various newspapers including City Press, Rapport, Sunday Times, Daily Sun, Isolezwe and the Mail & Guardian.
To apply, South Africans can send their CVs and a motivational covering letter of no more than one page to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 March 2013.
In the coming months we will continue laying the groundwork for a successful 2014 election campaign through building operational capacity on the ground, identifying the best candidates to represent us and delivering our message to all South Africans.
James Selfe, Chairperson of the DA Federal Executive
