As an academy of excellence the NEF continues to attract some of the best talent that South Africa has to offer.
The NEF nurtures and refines talent and is an organisation where merit and distinction are founded on the crucible of patriotism. The NEF's recruitment ethos is inspired by the recognition that the quest for economic transformation and growth needs skilled professionals who are honest, hard-working and willing to go the extra mile. The NEF is such a place.
Our vocation, therefore, is to be of service to our country, and indeed to our continent. The highest qualification for being at the NEF, second only to one’s professional distinction and performance, is indeed a patriotic commitment to the empowerment dividend, which is the pursuit of the most noble mandate in South Africa today.
