We have become aware of a number of job scams in which fraudsters try to extract personal information and money from people looking for jobs with Glencore and our related companies. We’ve put together this five-step guide to help you identify fake job postings and correspondence and help us all to beat these recruitment frauds.
How to spot a fraudulent job posting, email or other recruitment-related communication:
- They ask for money.
We will never ask for money from you – in any circumstances. If someone is asking you to send them money, it’s definitely fraudulent.
- You receive an email from a non-Glencore email address.
We always use official Glencore email addresses, such as firstname.lastname@Glencore.com, or firstname.lastname@Glencore.co.za. If the email you’ve received is from a free account such as Gmail, Yahoo! or Hotmail, it is not from us, and it’s not official.
- The job application is on a non-Glencore website.
All of our official job postings are hosted on https://glencorejobs.nga.net.au. Although our jobs may be advertised on third-party sites such as LinkedIn, the application itself is always on the site above.
- Someone asks for bank details before we’ve made an official job offer.
We never ask for your bank details until we’ve made an official offer, and we will always ask for your details using an official email address or other official communication channel.
- You receive a job offer for a role you’ve not applied for.
Before you can receive a job offer, you will always have applied for the job first, and will have been through our selection process, including a face-to-face interview. If this hasn’t yet happened, then it’s not an official job and you should not take it any further.
