Careers

To do great things, you need great people

If you are looking for a career with a leading organisation that believes in developing and growing employees, then Denel Overberg Test Range is the organisation for you. We believe that our strength lies in the quality of engineers, scientists, technicians, artisans and support staff we attract; in our commitment to excellence and in our vision to creating a better future for all.

We are committed to training and skills development as the process of giving our staff the opportunity to improve themselves and boldly progress in an increasingly dynamic and competitive world.


Career Development Opportunities 

Our employees are encouraged and supported to follow the career path they wish to take. Through development programmes, training and mentoring, they can reach their full potential and fulfil their personal career goals.

Employees are trained to equip themselves with the relevant knowledge and skills needed to execute their current jobs as well as to develop their own potential and career aspirations for possible future positions.

The Test Range supports training and development of employees by providing bursaries, interest free study loans and employer financed training.

  • Bursaries are allocated according to the organisations knowledge and skills needs.
  • Interest free study loans are granted to employees if the intended studies fulfil the agreed development needs and the employee could be considered for an alternative career within the organisation.
  • Employer financed training may pay the costs of attendance of courses, seminars, congresses and symposia, if the subjects are in line with agreed training needs and supportive to the knowledge and skills required by the Test Range.


Transformation

Denel Overberg Test Range is an Employment Equity employer that gives preference to suitably qualified candidates who add to the diversity of the company. We try to nurture this diversity where possible as we believe it allows us to deliver a better service to the South African society as a whole.

As an organisation committed to transformation, the Test Ranges employment principles are aimed at attracting quality professionals, as well as addressing historical imbalances, and promoting excellence in all staff members through an enabling environment.

Today the Test Range boasts a number of successful ACI employees (11.9%) amongst its professional ranks, while 46% of our total manpower strength is ACI employees.
