Recruitment Scam

We have been made aware recently of instances where unsolicited emails have been sent to members of the public offering various roles of employment within Bilfinger Salamis UK.  

If you believe you have been sent a fraudulent job offer, please read the below::

   How do I identify a fraudulent recruitment offer?

  • You will receive a series of emails offering you a position with Bilfinger Salamis UK. These may have our logo, our address, a staff member's name.
  • The emails may come from a generic email address, e.g from a Hotmail, Yahoo or Google account, or from an email address which is not a legitimate Bilfinger one e.g.
  • They will usually have a mobile telephone number starting 07, or a telephone number starting with 08.
  • The letter may ask you to provide your personal details, and your financial details. It may say that these details are required in order to process a visa, or other immigration documents. The letter may say that your application cannot be processed without these details.
  • The letters may also include the details of a solicitor or immigration specialist - these details are also false.
  • The letter will often be advertising positions which Bilfinger Salamis UK never advertise for - e.g in industries/countries we do not work in.

  How do I recognise a legitimate Bilfinger Salamis UK job offer?


  • Bilfinger never ask for any money or payments from applicants, at any point in the recruitment process.
  • We will only contact you if you have applied for an advertised position, or if you have previously applied for a position with us in the last 6 months and have agreed to have your details kept on file.
  • Job offers will only ever come from a legitimate Bilfinger email address - ending
  • Our jobs are advertised on our careers page - Check and see if the position is listed here.
  • If you click on a job offer, and want to reply to it, please double check the email address in the 'to' field - some fraudulent pages may change this address. It should always be to an address.

  What should I do if I believe I have been sent a fraudulent job offer?


  • Do not send your financial details, or payment. We will never ask for money to secure a position.
  • Do not send any of your personal details.
  • Do not engage in communications with the sender.
  • If you believe that the offer is a scam, then in the first instance contact your local police and provide them with all information you have from the senders, including the email address, phone number etc.
  • If you are still unsure, then please contact us at recruitmentfraud.salamis*Please remove text between *, this is a spam protection*
