Employment scam: AngloGold cautions against fake job postings

Mining giant, AngloGold Ashanti (Ghana) Limited has cautioned the public to be wary of online job postings in the name of the company and its subsidiary, AngloGold Ashanti (Iduapriem) Limited (AAIL).

In a statement released Wednesday, Head of Legal Services, Juliet Manteaw-Kutin said, “these job vacancies are false and the parties and/or individuals have not been contracted to recruit on behalf of the Company or its subsidiary, AAIL.

“All job opportunities in the Company and its subsidiaries are published on the Careers Page of the Company’s official website www.anglogoldashanti.com”, the statement added.

AngloGold warned the public to ignore such vacancy advertisements emphasising that “Please take further note that AngloGold Ashanti will never request payment of any fees as part of its recruitment process.”

The mining firm urged anyone who has fallen victim to this scam to report to the police.

The company says it has reported the matter to the appropriate authorities and is working to bring the perpetrators to book.
