The aim of this research is threefold: • to determine the nature of job satisfaction; • to determine the management factors which influence the job satisfaction of heads of departments at secondary schools, and • to determine which management factors influence the job satisfaction of heads of department at secondary schools in practice. In order to achieve these aims a literature study and empirical study were undertaken. The literature study was based on primary and secondary sources. A DIALOG computer search was undertaken with the key words such as: job satisfaction, motivation, department heads, teachers and managers. Once the nature of job satisfaction was discussed and the management factors which influence the job satisfaction of heads of departments were identified a questionnaire was compiled. All heads of departments or the previous Transvaal Education Department were taken as target group. The method of systemized random group targeting was applied. Questionnaires were sent to heads of departments who fell within the group randomly targeted. The information was statistically analyzed with the aid of a computer after which it was interpreted. Subsequent to these results recommendations were made. The empirical study showed that the heads of departments at secondary schools in the Transvaal Education Department experience more job satisfaction than is generally accepted. Although there are a few factors, like compensation and professional status that don't contribute to job satistfaction, all the other factors generally do contribute to job satisfaction.
