This is one massive recruitment from SARS. The financial institution is searching for 250 call centre agents in Mzansi’s three leading provinces.


SARS posted the massive opportunities on their website ahead of the closing date on Monday 17 January 2021.

SARS confirmed that call centre agents are needed in Gauteng’s Alberton and Doringkloof, the Western Cape’s Bellville and in Durban, KwaZulu Natal.

“We are on the lookout for vibrant, energetic and driven individuals to join our contact centre team who makes customer happiness their mission in life and creating awesome moments their speciality,” SARS said.

With your expertise, help ensure that each taxpayer who deals with us has an exceptional experience. As a Service Agent, you will work in a friendly team environment and have to be willing to go the extra mile.

Opportunities by province:
