ANA reports that the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) on Thursday urged people seeking employment to be wary of a fake job advert that was circulating on social media.
It listed vacancies at the GCIS, government departments and other organisations. “We are warning the public about the fake advert so they do not fall prey to this scam. The GCIS advertises its vacancies through the Department of Public Service and Administration, Vuk’uzenzele, the GCIS website and through bona fide media houses,” acting director-general Phumla Williams said in a statement. Potential job seekers were encouraged to check with a recruiting company to determine if a listed vacancy was legitimate or fake. Caution was advised especially if an applicant was asked to pay money upfront.
