*Important update – Please be aware that we have been advised that some members of the public have been contacted by the following scammers. These people do not work for Adecco UK & Ireland or any other The Adecco Group brands.

    A number of fraud attempts have been reported in several countries using the Adecco name. During a job search or a selection process please be mindful that NO Adecco representative will ever request payment of any kind from a candidate or an associate.

    It has been brought to our attention that the ADECCO name and trademark has been used in several countries by persons who are in no way related to the Adecco Group. These persons place job adverts on general market websites using the name 'Adecco' without our permission. We also have reason to believe that e-mails, letter, telephone calls and other actions taken by these persons are nothing but illegitimate attempts to obtain money and access to job seekers' personal and confidential information.

    Protect Yourself

    Before releasing any personal information, ID or bank account details during a job search process, make sure your contact is an authorised Adecco representative. You can confirm it by getting in touch with an Adecco office in the United Kingdom here.

    Beware of any unexpected e-mail, instant message, voicemail or fax that claims to be from Adecco. If you receive such a message, get in touch with an Adecco office in your country and verify that the message is legitimate.

    If you believe that you have been victim of such frauds, we strongly recommend that you report the incident to local authorities.

    Contact Us

    If you would like to report an abuse of the Adecco name and trademark, please contact Adecco in the country where the incident occurred.
