False job offers
Fraudulent offers of employment
Fraudulent activity against our company will be taken very seriously and will be reported to the Police and/or relevant authorities.
We are aware that some individuals have received what they believed to be genuine offers of employment with our company which have subsequently turned out to be fraudulent. Such a scam is taken very seriously and will be reported to the Police and/or relevant authorities.
How can I identify if the job offer is fraudulent?
Individuals responsible for such scams will often advertise a job, which looks to be on behalf of the company on job web sites to entice candidates to apply.
This is then followed by correspondence, generally via email, which can often look authentic and can include our company logo and address details and may also contain an email address and domain name which may look to be genuinely linked to our business.
One such domain name which has been brought to our attention is bouyguesconstruction.co.uk. This is not a genuine domain name owned by our company and has no connection to Bouygues UK.
If I am interested in working for Bouygues UK, what is your typical recruitment journey?
- No personal details are requested via a form at any point and we would never ask candidates to make a payment for visas etc.
- Applicants can either apply for jobs directly via our genuine careers page accessible on www.bouygues-uk.com, Linkedin, the Careers in Construction website or other UK job boards. Bouygues UK does not advertise vacancies for positions in the UK on international job boards.
- Candidates will then be contacted directly by either one of our recruitment team, or one of our preferred suppliers.
- Once a CV is submitted and a candidate is selected for interview, they would be invited to a face to face interview at one of our UK regional offices.
- There would normally be a second interview and then a discussion regarding package either with a member of our recruitment team or an agency consultant.
- A representative from our HR department will then send an email version of an employment contract and a hard copy would also be sent in the post.
What should I do if I believe I have received a fraudulent job offer?
- treat any correspondence you receive with caution
- do not reply and do not call contact numbers provided as these can often be premium rate numbers, sometimes international
- Do not provide personal information or copies of official documents, for example passport, driving licence
- do not provide your bank details
- consider reporting the incident to your local police station
