RECRUITMENT FRAUD AND JOB SCAMS

Strategic Resources is a member of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and will work with candidates and clients to ensure that we promote the possibility and awareness of any fraud in the recruitment processes.

Bona-fide recruitment businesses and agencies will not request any payment from candidates for registering, requesting work seeking services or payment to be made for the placement of candidates in roles.

The aim of SAFERjobs is to complement the work of professional bodies like the REC to drive industry standards and ensure that the right regulatory and enforcement provisions are in place. An important first step is to continue raising awareness amongst jobseekers and the recruitment sector. Addressing scams and rogue practices is a shared agenda between government departments and industry and is crucial to protecting the interests of workers and compliant agencies. 

SAFERjobs is a non-profit, joint industry and law enforcement organisation designed to support job seekers, agency staff, and contractors with any suspected fraud, malpractice, breach of legislation, or poor experience they may encounter. SAFERjobs is supported by the DWP, BEIS, Metropolitan Police, and other government and industry organisations.

Job scams are not restricted to the recruitment industry, they occur wherever there is a job seeker a job. This point is often forgotten as people have associated job scams with the recruitment industry.

Strategic Resources would welcome feedback from their clients and candidates on any job scams that they have been made aware of. Comments would be passed to the relevant organisations.

Be aware and be safe!
