Recently, companies have increasingly become victims of so-called recruitment frauds. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to warn you about fake online job announcements relating to the Zumtobel Group.
Recruitment frauds involve placing fake job announcements online using the name of a company. In order to collect confidential data, the perpetrators pose as the company’s recruitment officers and thus receive applications. Often applicants are asked for personal data such as bank details or social security number. The purpose of some frauds is to install a virus or other malware (malicious software) on the computer of the applicant. In some cases, the scammers demand money from applicants under the pretence of supplying necessary software or covering recruitment agency fees.
Warning: this in no way reflects the genuine practices of the Zumtobel Group or its subsidiaries.
At present, we are not aware of any cases of recruitment frauds relating to the Zumtobel Group or one of our subsidiaries. However, these frauds cannot be prevented through the introduction of technical measures, as such recruitment frauds do not operate by manipulating the Zumtobel Group’s IT systems.
If you discover a suspicious online job announcement from the Zumtobel Group or are affected by an unusual requirement during an application process, we kindly request that you report this immediately to GlobalHumanResources@zumtobelgroup.com
In general, you can protect yourself by checking whether the announced position can actually be found on our job website, and then applying directly through our site.
