Netcare has warned the public about a scam on social media and other informal platforms purporting to offer jobs and training schemes with the company

According to Peter Warrener‚ group human resources director of Netcare‚ the company’s name is being misused in a series of social media job and training scams.


“Certain Facebook posts falsely indicate that the company is seeking to employ nurses. Similarly‚ learnerships and internship vacancies within Netcare are also being advertised.

“We continue to receive enquiries from members of the public seeking clarity on employment or training opportunities that are advertised fraudulently through various social media platforms under Netcare’s name‚” Warrener said on Monday

“Typically‚ the modus operandi of these fraudsters is to solicit money from the public with a promise of either employment at a Netcare facility or training towards becoming a Netcare employee.

“This is often done by requesting applicants to send payment as a part of their application‚” Warrener added.

He urged job seekers not to make any payment to secure a job interview‚ learnership programme or any other employment opportunities where the Netcare name was used.
