    Hi @gugu, we are not Eskom, we simply post their jobs on our website. The register link and login link take you to Eskom’s website where you should register and apply. These are all real jobs and yes, Eskom does employ people who apply online.

    For each job there should be a contact person and phone number you can use to get more info on that particular vacancy.

    Go ahead, register and apply for every job you qualify for.
