Careers at GEMS

Making South Africa healthier together

As an organisation entirely dedicated to serving our members, GEMS touches the lives of close on two million South Africans. Without doubt GEMS has matured into a quality medical scheme providing for public sector families across the board, but specifically for lower-income families who previously did not have access to private healthcare services before. This was achieved through focused practice, dedication and innovation, which remains our guiding force.

Government is empowered through GEMS to provide more employees with an opportunity to improve their health and wellbeing - in turn impacting positively on improved productivity levels in the public service.

GEMS is committed to delivering access to equitable, comprehensive and sustainable benefits to all public service employees.
