Eskom warns of fake jobs scam

Johannesburg – Eskom has warned the public about a potential recruitment scam that has been doing the rounds on different social media platforms.

On Friday the power utility assured job seekers that Eskom’s website is the only platform where they would be told about employment opportunities at the company.

"This is currently the only authentic job search site for Eskom vacancies.

"The public is advised to only use this site to search and apply for jobs advertised at Eskom," the company said in a statement issued on Friday.

The fake job posts can be found on both Facebook and Twitter.
