Recruitment scam warning

Please be aware that individuals impersonating Beca staff have been making fraudulent offers to job seekers in a number of countries.

Beca will never make an offer of employment without meeting the candidate. We encourage you to be wary of job offers that are presented via email, text message or Google Chat Hangout.

Scammers may try to take advantage of job seekers with enticing fake employment offers or asking you to provide sensitive personal information or to pay them money. 

Here are a few things to watch out for:

  • Communications that are unsolicited or unexpected, or are from an individual or website with which you are unfamiliar or whose domain name is inconsistent with that used by the actual business.
  • Correspondence from free e-mail accounts, like Yahoo, Hotmail or Gmail. Our Beca People & Culture team will not liaise with candidates through a non-Beca email address or phone number. 
  • Communications at the application phase requesting your social security number, tax file number, national insurance number, date of birth, bank account information, or other sensitive personal information. 
  • Communications that do not include information about a specific job opening or extend a job offer without an interview.
  • Job opportunities that come from people you do not know and appear "too good to be true."

If you have any doubt whatsoever about a job offer or any other communication claiming to come from Beca, please do not hesitate to contact our team at careers@beca.com.
