Expand your career with us

We are in the dynamic business of distributing products to the Spar Stores located throughout South Africa and some neighbouring countries.  With distribution centres (DCs) located in 5 provinces, we ensure that products are delivered to stores just in time for the consumer to enjoy their shopping experience at their local SPAR store.  All of this is made possible by the dedicated staff we have at our DCs and Central Office.

SPAR offers rewarding careers in the fields of sales, finance, marketing, logistics, information technology and human resources.  We are constantly on the lookout for people with the right skills and attitude to join our SPAR family.  We have teamed up with Career Junction, South Africa’s largest online career portal, to advertise vacancies.
