We asked Truworths Divisional Director of HR why they are not transparent about pay in their job adverts.

Transparency Unfashionable

Dear Leonie,

Re: your request for clarity on our job advertisements

Truworths chooses not to disclose salaries with advertisements for employment opportunities so as not to inadvertently and prematurely exclude good candidates from positions based purely on their salary expectations.

Truworths offers market-related salaries and remunerates fairly based on the requirements of a role, the candidate’s qualifications, skills and experience. Furthermore candidates are welcome to discuss their salary expectations during the interview process.

We find your social media posts to be unnecessarily hostile toward Truworths, particularly given that advertising employment opportunities without a salary range is not an unusual practice in South Africa.  

Truworths will not hesitate to defend itself against defamatory statements, and reserves all its legal rights.



Mark Smith

Divisional Director : Human Resources

1 Mostert Street, Cape Town, 8001

P.O. Box 600, Cape Town 8000, South Africa
