About the Department

Welcome to the KwaZulu-Natal Amafa and Research Institute vacancies page. On this page you will find all the latest open job opportunities available.

The KwaZulu-Natal Amafa and Research Institute (The Institute) is the provincial heritage resources authority (PHRA) for KwaZulu Natal. Amafa, the predecessor to The Institute, was established as a statutory body in terms of the KZN Heritage Act of 1997, replaced by the KZN Heritage Act of 2008. The Institute became the official PHRA on the 14 December 2018 when the new KwaZulu-Natal Amafa and Research Institute Act (5 of 2018) was Gazetted.

The Institute has offices in Pietermaritzburg (Head Office), and Ulundi and manages several major heritage projects such as the Isandlwana & Rorke’s Drift Battlefields, Border Cave archaeological site and the KwaZulu Cultural Museum.

The mission of Amafa Heritage AkwaZulu Natali is to strive for excellence in the conservation, management, interpretation and sustainable utilisation of the heritage resources of KwaZulu-Natal for present and future generations.

The Entity’s goals are to conserve and manage the full cultural diversity of heritage resources in KwaZulu-Natal; promote the use of the province’s cultural resources in a manner that is equitable and sustainable; encourage and facilitate public access to heritage resources, including encouragement of research, education and living heritage practices; support the tourism industry of the province by providing appropriate facilities and experiences to visitors of the sites; and employ suitably qualified personnel to ensure that the management of heritage resources, and the auxiliary services thereto, is undertaken in a manner that will promote the values of the organisation.
