Hotel giant says it is aware of case of Jumeirah brand being misused by fake recruitment agent
Dubai's Jumeirah Group has warned of fraudulent recruitment firms attempting to use the company's name to extort money from potential jobseekers.
"We are aware that one or more third parties are misusing the Jumeirah brand and the brands of other companies, pretending to be working on behalf of those brands as a recruitment agent," a spokesperson for the luxury hotel group told Zawya in an email statement.
"The Jumeirah Group does not send unsolicited emails with offers of employment nor require any payment of fees for the processing of job applications of employment visas," he added.
The operator of Burj Al Arab, which operates 23 Jumeirah-branded properties in total, said all job vacancies are advertised in the careers section of its official website and any emails offering jobs to potential employees would come from email addresses using the 'jumeirah.com' domain.
"Jumeirah does not permit employees to send or receive work related emails from personal accounts or any other address," the company said in a post on its website.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
