SAFERjobs CIC (company registration: 10440381) is a non-profit organisation created by the Metropolitan Police to raise awareness and combat criminal activities that may be attempted on those seeking a job, those within the recruitment industry or through the services provided by the industry. The ultimate aim is to protect job seekers and agency staff from exploitation.

SAFERjobs is supported by GOV UK and works with a number of government organisations to protect people searching for work or currently working within the recruitment sector. Our partners include the Metropolitan Police, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Trading Standards, City of London Police, the Home Office, and Action Fraud.

In 2016 almost 0.75m job seekers visited the SAFERjobs website for help and advice. Information provided to SAFERjobs by job seekers led to a large amount of enforcement action, website take downs, and the removal of fake jobs in 2016, work we are committed to continuing.

To stay safe in your job search we recommend that you visit SAFERjobs, a non-profit, joint industry and law enforcement organisation working to combat job scams. Visit the SAFERjobs website for information on common scams and to get free, expert advice for a safer job search.

  3. have a limit as to how many times the same advert can be published;
