Scam Alert

Please be cautioned that scam advertisements appear on social media and other platforms on an ongoing basis, falsely claiming that Netcare or Netcare facilities are looking to either employ or train people. These advertisements may appear very legitimate. The latest scam advert states that Netcare is offering a nursing learnership programme in 2023 but gives false information to respond to.

Look out for the following ‘red flags’ that may point to the fact that the training opportunity or job advertised is a scam and not legitimate:

– The application form asks for your banking details;

– Only a cellular telephone number is supplied for enquiries, sometimes claiming that the landline is “out of order”;

– A dream job or training is promised without the need for you to be interviewed;

– Payment may well be requested from you upfront for so-called administration purposes, accommodation or uniforms;

– Interviews are conducted somewhere other than Netcare’s head office or a Netcare facility;

– The payment mechanism is suggested as being facilitated via a cellular telephone number at a money market facility, such as a supermarket.

We urge you to make contact with the Netcare Human Resources Shared Services Centre at 086 022 5547 to verify the legitimacy of any training opportunity or job offer.
