The Gauteng Department of Health has urged people to avoid job scammers who claim to be government officials and offering bogus jobs in exchange for cash.
This comes after the department discovered that fraudulent recruiters are requesting people to deposit an amount of R2 000 at a retail store in exchange for nursing, porting and general employment at the George Mukhari Academic Hospital.
MEC for Health Qedani Mahlangu condemned the sale of jobs in the public service and urged people to go onto trustworthy platforms such as Gauteng Online, Department of Public Service website or newspapers.
“We condemn those who exploit people’s desperation for employment for their own devious ends. We plead with community members not to pay money for jobs in any of our facilities,” said MEC Mahlangu.
The department firmly stated that vacancies are not for sale, urged the public to report individuals in the government who promise them jobs in exchange for money to the police.
