Working at Sanlam goes beyond merely a day job. It encompasses an ethos and culture, a way of doing business. We call it the Sanlam Way. 

Sanlam is based on a fundamental belief in honest, hard work to make the most of every rand we’re entrusted with. We respect how hard people work for their money and we strive to make it work as hard for them as they did to earn it.

You will work alongside interesting, passionate people and have the chance to be a part of challenging projects in a multicultural, stimulating environment. Over and above your skillset, there will be many opportunities for you to further Sanlam’s ethos, not only in the office but also in the greater community and environment in which we operate.


Sanlam is aware of a recruitment scam on Facebook and WhatsApp where the public is invited to submit their CVs by either clicking on a link or sending an email to This is not a Sanlam advertisement and we will never require job applicants to pay any fees to secure employment. Consumers are advised to be aware of these fraudulent scams, and job seekers are encouraged to visit the official Sanlam career portal to apply for any vacancies at Sanlam.
