Our People

Mediclinic Southern Africa prides itself on the calibre of staff, attracted and retained in an increasingly difficult labour market. We believe that the level of job satisfaction of our more than 16 000 employees is directly influenced by our group values, our policy of internal and external equity, and a stated commitment to the development of each individual. An Ipsos Markinor survey on staff engagement shows the majority of employees are proud to work for Mediclinic and believe it is one of the best brands in the industry.

Mediclinic welcomes employees who are driven team players with a high level of commitment to the growth of the business through service excellence.

A high premium is placed on competency-based recruitment and selection to ensure that the best individual is appointed according to the unique requirements of each vacancy. All vacancies are advertised simultaneously internally and externally. Internal candidates will however receive priority consideration. We believe in promoting internal talent where appropriate.

As an employer, we are committed to equality in all employment practices and are therefore sensitive to each business unit’s Employment Equity plan when appointments are made.

What We Offer

Besides a pleasant working environment, employees’ contributions are rewarded with a market-related remuneration package, which includes a subsidised medical aid and retirement fund, generous leave benefits and a thirteenth cheque.

We also offer a special bonus scheme for nurses. According to the scheme, a special bonus (14th cheque) is reserved annually for each eligible nurse after twelve months of uninterrupted service. Reserved amounts are paid out annually according to a predetermined formula, from the second year up to and including the tenth year.

Excellent opportunities are offered for the development of employees. To ensure sustained safe patient care, the group has made a substantial investment in training and development with its main focus on: continuing professional development, basic and post-basic nursing education, business process training and management and leadership development.

We offer an Employee Assistance programme (WAKE) that forms part of the Mediclinic Corporate Health programme that provides the following health services to employees: a primary care service, an occupational health service, disability management, chronic disease management and an HIV Aids programme.
