Protecting candidates from recruitment website fraud

The world of recruitment is as prone to risk and fraud as any other, but recruitment website design is the latest area in which recruitment agencies are finding themselves on the back foot. Fraudsters are using recruitment platforms, and even designing their own websites, to create online vacancies to obtain personal information from candidates. While the best recruitment websites are hard to fake, there’s no doubt that the scammers are skilled in creating fake sites. Action Fraud is reporting a rise in recruitment scams, with people being exploited either through false adverts on reputable job websites or through follow up messages sent on Whatsapp to persuade people to hand over personal details such as passport information and bank details. While the Recruitment and Employment Confederation has reiterated that its members would never ask candidates for payment to obtain work, it’s up to recruiters to ensure that their website for recruitment is secure and contains clear information about what they will, and won’t ask candidates in their search for employment.
