NETCARE JOBS SCAMS WARNING
Netcare 911 cautions public in the light of continued job and training scams
Netcare is alerting the public to the opportunistic placement of Netcare-specific career and training opportunities on social media and other informal platforms, with the Netcare or Netcare 911’s name being misused in a series of social media job and training scams.
Certain Facebook posts falsely indicate that the company is seeking to employ paramedics and nurses. Similarly, learnerships and internship vacancies within Netcare are also being advertised. We continue to receive enquiries from members of the public seeking clarity on employment or training opportunities that are advertised fraudulently through various social media platforms under Netcare’s name.
Typically, the modus operandi of these fraudsters is to solicit money from the public with a promise of either employment at a Netcare facility or training towards becoming a Netcare employee. This is often done by requesting applicants to send payment as a part of their application.
In order to assist the public, Netcare is sharing a number of warnings that may indicate that the job advertised is a scam and not a legitimate job opportunity:
We urge the public to be very suspicious of such messages, Facebook postings and emails as they do not originate from Netcare. This is not the way that we recruit staff or advertise learnerships and internships.
Job seekers are furthermore urged to not make any payment in an attempt to secure a job interview, learnership programme or any other employment opportunities where the Netcare or Netcare 911 or a variation of the names is used.
Individuals are advised to contact the Netcare Human Resources Shared Services Centre on 086 022 5547 if they would like to verify the legitimacy of a job posting.
