An official of Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), Esimaje Brikinn, has dissociated the company from an ongoing job recruitment exercise being circulated on social media.
In a statement on Friday, the company, the operator of the NNPC/CNL Joint Venture, said it is aware of the circulation of “false recruitment information posted by unscrupulous persons and organisations in the name of CNL in several media and online channels, advertising job positions in CNL”.
Mr Brikinn, the General Manager, Policy, Government and Public Affairs of CNL, said the fraudulent job offers had reportedly been sent through emails, text messages and phone calls by individuals purporting to be staff or representatives of CNL, with the intent to defraud their victims.
“CNL hereby dissociates itself from such false job recruitment information and offers of employment contracts published in any newspaper, website, email, poster, handbill or any other medium. CNL did not make or authorise such publications,” Mr Brikinn said.
“Members of the public are hereby notified that Chevron Nigeria Limited does not, and will not require applicants to make any payments towards processing any job application.
“Recruitment advertisements requesting candidates to pay money, at any point during the recruitment process, are not from CNL.”
The official also said CNL does not solicit job applications or initiate recruitment processes through emails, posters, handbills, text messages, social media or phone calls.
Mr. Brikinn advised job seekers to always check the company’s website at: http:/www.careers.chevron.com and the national newspapers for job advertisements from Chevron Nigeria Limited.
Mr Brikinn added that CNL would not respond to enquiries about fraudulent advertisements and job offers.
