Avoid Job Scams
London Jobs With Protection is an initiative with JobsAware, Department for Work & Pensions, Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy, Disclosure & Barring Service, The Metropolitan Police, Crown Commercial Service and Disclosure Scotland.
You can Avoid Job-Scams and the trauma that they bring as well as the loss of money to each person, affected.
The Job search process can be challenging and frustrating but what’s really cruel is the proliferation of Job-Scams.
These often lure job-seekers in, they end up handing over money, expecting to start a new job only to find they’ve been misled and there’s no job.
We’re delighted to have signed up to be partners with JobsAware to offer more protection to all job our seekers.
We Are Committed to Job Seeker Welfare
London Jobs With Protection Initiative has a mission statement to ensure that you stay safe in your job search.
We recommend that you visit JobsAware, a non-profit, joint industry and law enforcement organisation working to combat job scams. Visit the JobsAware website for information on common scams and to get free, expert advice for a safer job search.
The London Jobs Market
According to ‘The Undercover Recruiter’ which has used information from ‘SmallBusinessPrices.co.uk’ London had job availability 30.6% above the national average.
It therefore follows that London probably has the biggest challenges regarding job-scams.
Principles of Good Practice
Job Vacancies – We only work with established and genuine Jobs providers, who are themselves, mostly signed up for the JobsAware Scheme. Any jobs uploaded by individuals or companies have to go through a verification process.
Due Diligence – We check potential employer location, profiles, if reviews are real. Also look at past conduct, if possible, to ensure there is no history regarding mistreatment of Jobseekers.
Boundaries – We have a system in place to minimise the number of times, the same advert can be published.
Granting Permission to Publish – Once jobs have been uploaded by a third party they go straight to ‘Admin Review’ allowing us to check if they meet our criteria. If they do then the job or jobs are authorised, published then become active.
Rejecting Jobs – If they don’t meet our criteria, which could also include they are possible threats to our jobs infrastructure like possible malware or spam then at the ‘Admin Review’ stage the uploaded jobs would be rejected.
Further Investigation – This would involve asking all the required questions to establish if Garniche Jobs London could move forward with this job or reject it.
Misleading – Try to ensure that Job Postings that are blatantly misleading are removed (if issues are flagged up by Jobseekers and we agree after investigation) or problems may be identified prior to approval.
Duty of Care – To report and share information about fraud with JobsAware.
Permission – Garniche Jobs London will seek permission from Jobseekers before transferring their data.
Breaches – A process in place to investigate breaches.
