October 4, (THEWILL) – Fake recruitment agencies have made attempts to hijack the ongoing recruitment process for job placements in Nigeria Air.
Nigeria Air is a proposed airline and flag carrier in Nigeria, whose name and logo were unveiled at the Farnborough Air Show in the United Kingdom in July 2018.
A few weeks ago, the new airline advertised vacancies for captains, first officers, senior cabin crew, cabin crew and engineers in the B737 requirements. A few days after the advertisement, THEWILL gathered that some fake recruitment agents took advantage of the job openings, creating a host of fake websites and links supposedly for the submission of applications by unsuspecting members of the public.
But in a disclaimer notice, the management of Nigeria Air had warned the general public to ignore such announcements or invitations, as responding to, or dealing with them in any way, will be at their own risk.
The statement issued on Tuesday morning stated, “The attention of the Management of Nigeria Air Limited has been drawn to some recruitment advertisements and announcements by certain unscrupulous elements claiming to be agents or staff of the upcoming airline.”
According to the management, the so-called agents have created a host of fake websites and links supposedly for the submission of applications by unsuspecting members of the public.
“We wish to inform the general public, especially those who have applied for the earlier officially advertised positions that no recruitment interviews or tests have been scheduled. All such announcements or invitations for such should be disregarded as they are the handiwork of fraudsters and scammers.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the official website is www.nigeriaair.world, and only those pre-qualified as meeting the B737 requirements will be contacted by the management of Nigeria Air Limited individually, and certainly not by public announcements.
“All those concerned are therefore advised to ignore such announcements or invitations, as responding to, or dealing with them in any way, will be at their own risk.
“Management appreciates the unprecedented level of interest shown by Nigerians in the airline which has resulted in the receipt of over 20,000 applications for positions in the organisation so far and wishes to state that the recruitment process for other positions will begin in due course”, the airline stated.
