Newmont cautions public against fraudulent recruitment schemes


Newmont Corporation’s (NYSE: NEM, TSX: NGT, ASX: NEM, PNGX: NEM) Africa Business Unit is cautioning the Ghanaian public to beware of fraudulent recruitment schemes targeting job seekers with non-existent employment opportunities with the company’s operations in Ghana. 

The company said it has become aware that there has been an increase in individuals posing as Newmont employees in Ghana and offering fake job opportunities in Ahafo, Akyem and other locations and requesting a fee. 

They usually use the following numbers: 0552015371 or 0538196242, but could be using other numbers as well.

Newmont in a statement said it has not appointed or mandated any official, individual, company, or group to take payment from job seekers or applicants, in exchange for job opportunities. Newmont vacancies can only be accessed on the careers page of the company’s website:

Newmont said it does not request an upfront payment or application processing fee from candidates at any point during the recruitment process. 

It warned that any such representation is a scam designed to take undue advantage of job seekers.

Newmont noted that it is working with Ghana’s security agencies to identify and prosecute the perpetrators of such schemes.

If you become aware of, or have any information about these fraudulent activities, please contact the Ghana Police Service on 191, 18555, or 0302787373.
