A warning about fraudulent job offers

At John Holland, we know our people are critical to our success which is why we have fair and thorough recruitment processes. Unfortunately, like many organisations, we know our name and company logo are sometimes used without our permission by third parties for the purposes of fraud.

How do I know if I have received a fraudulent job offer?

Scammers often contact job seekers through fake recruitment emails, social networking platforms such as LinkedIn, text messages and unofficial websites. Often, these communications are unsolicited. They make immediate offers of employment, and many of them target job seekers who do not presently have working rights in Australia. 

They ask these job seekers to disclose their personal and financial details, in order to extort or otherwise obtain money from them.

You may have received a fraudulent job offer if you:

  • Receive unsolicited communication from John Holland via email, LinkedIn, text message or other means;
  • Receive an immediate job offer without having attended any interviews; 
  • Are asked to make payments to us, including to receive working rights or a visa; and
  • Receive an email that uses a fake variant of our official email address.


What should I do if I receive a fraudulent job offer?

If you believe you have received a fraudulent job offer, please:

  • Do not respond to the communication or provide any personal or financial information;
  • Contact John Holland to determine the authenticity of the offer. You can do so by emailing NASER@jhg.com.au;
  • Stop all communication with the individual/organisation immediately; and
  • If you have already disclosed your personal and financial details, please inform your bank/financial provider immediately and notify police. You can also submit a cybercrime report by visiting https://www.cyber.gov.au/acsc/report.

All employment opportunities with John Holland are advertised on our website. You can also see our available roles here.
