Fraudulent Job Offers

Beware of fraudulent job offers: WFP is aware of fictitious employment offers being circulated via email, social media accounts or originating from online job boards. Many of these schemes consist of an alleged offer of employment or contract with WFP in return for the payment of fees or providing personal or banking information.

Such fraudulent correspondence may appear legitimate: they may feature a WFP logo, they may appear to originate from an official-looking email address, social media handle or website or they may be sent by individuals purporting to represent WFP or an entity which includes the word WFP in its name.

WFP only advertises its employment opportunities on its global employment website or utilizes bona fide and established media, newspapers and online job boards to disseminate its vacancies.

Please note:
WFP does not charge a fee at any stage of the recruitment process (application, interview, meeting, traveling, processing, training or any other).
