Working with integrity is fundamental to how we do business at Thiess. Unfortunately, there are occasions when dishonest third parties, unrelated to Thiess, falsely represent our business.

Fraudulent activities include recruitment fraud or sophisticated email scams, all of which aim to trick or mislead unsuspecting individuals.

Recruitment fraud

All career opportunities with Thiess follow a formal recruitment process and are managed through our website. Thiess does not send unsolicited job offers or charge recruitment fees or payment as part of our recruitment process.

Warning signs of recruitment fraud include:

  •          Requests for fees such as visa/immigration fees, travel expenses or payments to progress to the next stage in the recruitment process
  •          Requests for personal information, including bank account, passport or credit card details via email
  •          Emails or documents that include poor grammar, spelling or formatting
  •          Unsolicited emails offering jobs or relocation assistance.

Email scams

Thiess does not send unsolicited emails asking for personal or confidential details. These are phishing emails that appear to be from a legitimate business, and may contain company logos, but are scam emails.

Suspicious emails are often poorly written and contain grammar or spelling mistakes. They often contain attachments containing viruses or links to a fraudulent copy of our website. Do not open such attachments or click on a link, and never provide any personal information to a source you don’t know.

What we can do

Completely eliminating targeted attacks is difficult, but we are working with all our partners to continuously improve our security systems. It is important to remain vigilant and take the time to carefully review requests for information. If you suspect an email you received to be fraudulent, please send it to feedback@thiess.com.au and legal@thiess.com.au

All instances of misrepresentation of our business will be reported to the relevant police authorities.
