SAFERjobs releases December activity summary
SAFERjobs (Safe Advice for Employment and Recruitment) has released a summary of activity in December.
Site views, at 40, 449, were down for December, although the company say this was expected. There were a total of 88 reports for the month, with total financial quantity reported in fraud reports at £42,788.92.
Both NASES (National Association of Student Employment Services) and the AoC (Association of Colleges) have written to their members about job scams. NASES are working on linking their site to SAFERjobs. Cardiff and Manchester universities have already agreed to link their sites to SAFERjobs.
According to SAFERjobs, the NHS Jobs are putting a paper together for their board to feature the organisation on their jobs site. SAFERjobs say that 1 of the 3 NHS Frameworks (HTE) have now agreed to advertise the company on their site and to their recruitment agency partners.
The main activity currently, SAFERjobs say, is the DBS scam which has evolved to Glassdoor Marketing and Ideal1. All participating job boards have been warned and Action Fraud have sent information to NTSB e-crime.
The Home Office are chasing an update on permission for SAFERjobs to use their logo. Both the Home Office and SAFERjobs will be presenting at the Recruitment Expo in London Feb 3rd and 4th.
SAFERjobs will feature in Recruitment International’s February magazine.
