The vacancies listed include office secretary, technical support staff, clerical officer and accountant, security guards, trainer of trainees and interns.
The ad urges interested candidates to send their applications to a Gmail email address and promises to reply to those shortlisted between 24 September and 2 October 2021.
Vacancies not listed through official channels
The ad asked applicants to send their applications to a Gmail address and not an official ActionAid email address.
These are warning signs that the ad might be a scam.
‘Ignore this fake advert’
The tweet reads, in part: “Please be informed that the job advert making rounds on social media is fake. Kindly note that AAIU has not outsourced any recruitment support and all job ads from the organisation are shared via print media, our official website and social media platforms.”
The organisation has also urged the public to be cautious and report any suspected fraudulent ActionAid recruitment directly to them.
