Avoid recruitment scams

We have recently become aware of bogus businesses pretending to be Direct Line Group and fraudulently attempting to recruit on our behalf on recruitment websites. Following applications to these job adverts, applicants were notified that they were suitable to work as an employee for Direct Line Group and were asked for money to pay for the processing of the application. 
 
Please note that these communications are fraudulent. They do not originate from Direct Line Group nor are they associated with our recruitment process.
 
Direct Line Group (and any organisation that recruits on our behalf), will never ask for any money or payments from applicants, at any point in the recruitment process. All individuals interested in employment with Direct Line Group, whether directly or indirectly, are always required to go through a formal recruitment process.
 
Key things to look out for when spotting a fraudulent job advert or subsequent confirmation email are that:
  • they come from non-Direct Line Group e-mail addresses (e.g. from a yahoo.com address)
  • the use of English is poor
  • at some stage, money is requested.
  • a firm offer of employment is made before you have attended an interview
 
We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited propositions and/or offers from people with whom you are unfamiliar. Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know. If you receive such proposals, we would advise you to contact your local police and provide them with all information you may have from the senders (email addresses, phone/fax details, etc.).
