Brewer raises red flag over online employment scam
East African Breweries Limited (EABL) has raised the red flag on an online scam ostensibly offering employment to applicants in various towns in Kenya. The brewer says it has also come to its attention that the perpetrators of this fraud are asking for money to secure a chance for such would-be applicants.
EABL has thus clarified that its headquarters and its subsidiaries offer jobs and/or contracts through a detailed recruitment process which involves its HR personnel directly contacting such applicants.
‘We also DO NOT ask for any money in our job recruitment exercises. All recruitment is officially communicated online through https://www.eabl.com ,’
read in part, a statement released by the company.
‘We, therefore, want to notify members of the public to ignore the communication, mainly being conveyed on social/online media purporting to advertise jobs. There is no such exercise currently going on. If you receive such a message/email we advise that you do not reply to it’.
The company further clarified that as it conducts investigations into this matter, the company warns perpetrators of this crime that EABL takes all fraudulent or unauthorised use of its name very seriously.
