Jobs - top tips for staying safe

  1. You should find out as much as you can about the company from independent resources before taking up a position. If you are an employer, follow up on references and check on their authenticity.

  2. Meet your prospective employers/ employees face to face.

  3. You should NOT have to provide your bank account details or personal identification when applying for a job (this should only be once you have accepted an offer and started with the company). If any jobs ask you for them, please report it to us

  4. Avoid 'work from home' jobs which aren't from well known organisations

  5. Avoid listings that guarantee you wealth, financial success, or that will help you get rich fast. Stay clear of listings that offer you high income for part-time hours. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is!
