Recruitment Fraud

We operate in a highly regulated industry across multiple geographies. This complex and dynamic environment presents us with opportunities to increase our value contributed through an innovative and agile strategic approach coupled with effective risk management. This provides compelling career opportunities for talent willing to work smart, with purpose and passion.
Unfortunately, this also presents opportunities for fraudsters. Recruitment fraud has become a part of modern job hunting and can be challenging to spot. These fraudsters are becoming increasingly sophisticated, using information from actual companies and other information readily available online to advertise fake job listings.
Aspen will never adopt any of the below points:
  • Send emails from free accounts, such as Gmail or Yahoo
  • Use text or online chats
  • Request money or ask you to pay a fee
  • Request personal documentation early on in the process, such as passport or bank account details
  • Offer a job without an interview.
