fraud attempts by misuse brands Randstad Group.

Please be aware that it happens increasingly often that persons who are in no way connected to the Randstad Group, pretend vis-à-vis the outside world to be part of one of the Randstad brands. Without our permission, they

  • pose as a recruiter of a Randstad company by contacting people (e.g. via email, letter, phone, social media) about a “suitable position” (either a real vacancy of a Randstad company or a fake one); or
  • try to tempt people to contact them by placing fake job adverts on (employment) websites, using the name of a Randstad brand.

The persons concerned request their “potential victims” to provide them with all kinds of personal information and to make (a) payment(s). It should be noted that none of the Randstad brands will ever request payment of any kind or a copy of a credit card or debit card from a candidate during a recruitment or job search process. 

If you become aware of misuse of the brands of the Randstad Group and in particular of fraud attempts, please report contact us as soon as possible (

Randstad employees will only request your personal data by email from official Randstad email domains ( if this is necessary for Randstad to determine your suitability for a position we are recruiting for a client.

Fraudsters are using Randstad's company name to set up fraudulent social media accounts to target members of the public in Switzerland. The fraudsters use the fake social media accounts to target members of the public via Whatsapp, Facebook or Instagram, asking for their personal details in order to defraud them. The targets are often offered attractive full-time and part-time jobs that offer good commissions at other companies in Switzerland.

We at Randstad therefore ask that if you receive such a message, you report it directly and block the number immediately to avoid further consequences.
