RECRUITMENT FRAUD ALERT:

B2Gold is aware of various types of recruitment scams, particularly at our operations in Mali and Namibia.  We would therefore like to warn members of the public against falling prey to scams.

Various approaches are used to solicit money and personal information from unsuspecting individuals.  Job seekers are typically contacted by someone posing to be an employee or representative of B2Gold, a recruitment agent, or a trainer.  These scammers offer employment in exchange for money, or solicit personal information.  Such individuals may also use fraudulent B2Gold letterheads to issue ‘offers of employment’.

Employment at B2Gold can only be obtained through a standard application and interview process, and the company is in no way associated with any individual or company soliciting money.

B2Gold adheres to ethical recruitment practices, and the company will NEVER:

  1. Request payment, directly or through a third party, to secure employment
  2. ‘Sell’ training, directly or through a third party, that will guarantee a person employment
  3. Send an email from a Gmail, Hotmail, Live, Yahoo or any other internet-based email service provider account
  4. Request personal information such as banking details, unless someone has already commenced employment

We would like to encourage anyone who is contacted in the above manner to report this to the local HR Manager, police or anti-fraud/anti-corruption centre in your country, and to provide as much detail of the scammer/s as possible, such as names and contact details they provided to you.
