Mogale City’s Human Capital Management wishes to again caution members of the public of job scams that have once again resurfaced to rip-off vulnerable job seekers. In the latest scam, unsuspecting job seekers are required to make a payment of R3 700 for a pre-employment medical assessment to secure a job with the municipality.

We again caution the public against falling prey to these scams and continue to emphasise that:

  • Applying for employment in the municipality is free, anyone asking for money is breaking the law.
  • All vacant positions, tenders and quotations are only advertised in targeted national newspapers and on the municipal website.
  • If the job listing is not on our website, it does not exist. Those posing as consultants or using online media platforms are fraudsters.
  • If you did not contact Mogale City for a job but the municipality supposedly contacts you with a job offer, it is a scam. Scammers could have found your CV online and used your details to target you.
  • Mogale City never sends shortlisted candidates job offers or interview invitations via SMS or email.
  • Likewise, Mogale City does not request upfront payments for land, RDP homes, property sale or other product offerings.

If you suspect to have received fraudulent communication from the municipality or have been approached by an individual/s or agency that attempts to solicit a fee or request your banking details using Mogale City brand, please do not cooperate. We urge you to contact the nearest police station.
