Fugro has received inquiries seeking clarification of job offers received in unsolicited fashion. These job offers appear to come from organisations falsely pretending to recruit on behalf of Fugro, or by people claiming to work for, or be affiliated to, a Fugro company.
These propositions notify individuals that their qualifications were found suitable to work as an employee (local or expatriate) for a Fugro company and solicit money or a facilitation payment to pay for work permits, insurance policies, etc.
Please note that Fugro (nor any of the organisations that recruit on our behalf) never asks for any money or payments from applicants at any point in the recruitment process. All individuals who are successful in gaining an offer of employment from Fugro, whether directly or indirectly, are always required to go through a formal recruitment process.
All communications should originate from a verifiable Fugro e-mail address and not from an Internet e-mail address e.g.: hotmail, yahoo etc. For example, a false email address is firstname.lastname@example.org (note the "s" is NOT a legitimate Fugro email address).
What to do
- Do not respond to unsolicited job offers from people or e-mail addresses you do not know or trust.
- Do not disclose any details about yourself (including personal or financial) to anyone you do not know or trust or on a website you do not trust. Consider reporting the incident to your local law enforcement.
- Be on the lookout for suspicious signs such as communications from non-Fugro e-mail addresses; poor use of written English and requests for money or facilitation payments.
Fugro's name and identity has been used fraudulently in certain instances which we are aware of and have no control over. In as much as we sympathise with anyone who has lost money in this way, Fugro cannot accept any responsibility for a fraudulent job offer or solicitation of payment in Fugro’s name.
