Recruitment fraud

Recruitment fraud

Unfortunately, fraud is an ever-present danger posed to jobseekers around the world, and these attacks may sometimes claim to represent Mott MacDonald. Fraud can happen through fake websites, social media accounts, online job boards or email accounts claiming to be from our company, or one of our employees. We don’t want you to fall victim to these scams, so we’ve provided some guidance to keep your money and personal information safe.

We’re aware of a recruitment scam where individuals posing as Mott MacDonald employees are contacting people through Fiverr, inviting them to an interview through Google Hangouts, and sending false job offers in an effort to obtain personal information.

Mott MacDonald does not recruit through Fiverr.

If you have any concerns, see suspicious job adverts, or receive suspicious communications please email careers@mottmac.com. We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited offers of employment for people claiming to work for, or be affiliated with Mott MacDonald. If you believe you are the victim of any fraudulent activity, we advise you to contact your appropriate authorities.

Here are some warning signs you need to watch out for:

  • An email that has been sent from a free web-based email account such as Yahoo, Gmail or Hotmail.com
  • If you have received an offer of employment and/or requested to confirm personal information such bank account details without a formal interview process
  • If you have received an offer of employment and have been asked to send money to cover visa or immigration costs
  • Insistence on urgency including being able to relocate at short notice
  • Documentation, adverts, or emails containing spelling and grammatical errors
  • Documentation that is poorly formatted
  • Documentation, adverts, or emails that are not written in English
  • If the advert asks you to apply directly to an email address. All Mott MacDonald job adverts appear on www.mottmac.com/careers and will ask you to apply via our website or direct you to an https:/sjobs.brassring.com URL
  • If you have been asked to contact a mobile (cell) phone number rather than an office

If you have any concerns or receive a communication you'd like checked, please forward it to careers@mottmac.com. If you have received a suspicious looking email from careers@mottmac.com then do not use the reply-to button. Instead re-type the email address to ensure it doesn’t redirect your message to the fraudsters email account.
