Transport department warns of fake advertisements for jobs

The North West Department of Community Safety and Transport Management has issued a warning that fake jobs are being advertised under the name of the department.

The North West department said this week that there are currently no vacancies and the last vacancies advertised were four months ago.

The department said it had received many enquiries about these fake posts and people flocked to the department’s offices to submit applications before the 17 July 2020 deadline on the false advertisements.

Chief Director for Corporate Services Sizile Mpolokeng warns potential candidates that the department has not advertised any posts since before the lockdown.

“We are, therefore, advising potential candidates to ignore these fake advertised posts. Any future positions shall be advertised as per normal channels including the department’s website, government emails, through print and online media platforms, as well as on official departmental social media pages.”
