We are aware that a number of phishing emails are being sent to members of the public. Phishing emails are an increasingly common method used to try and gain access to personal details in order to carry out fraud or identity theft.
To ensure you are protected from fraudulent recruitment practices, we advise you to familiarise yourself with the following points
If you receive any communications that have not originated from a genuine Kier (@kier.co.uk) email address, please contact us using firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, we understand there have been instances where phishing attempts have been made by someone who is posing as Kier Group and offering fraudulent job opportunities. It appears their aim is to fraudulently obtain funds, lure individuals into providing sensitive data such as bank details or personally identifiable information. If you believe you have been targeted by or fallen victim to such phishing attempts please contact us using email@example.com.
If you receive communications from someone appearing to be from Kier, make sure you check that it has come from a valid source.
For example, if you have received an email, you can check whether it has come from a valid Kier email. This will be @kier.co.uk or other variants of this which are used for joint venture contracts, these include, but are not limited to, @kierbamhpc.com or @ekfb.com.
We will never send business emails from email servers such as @outlook.com or @gmail.com.
Phishing emails may also contain links to website that look as though they are affiliated with Kier, but do not. Our only careers site is careers.kier.co.uk and any other official websites are listed in the footer at the bottom of this page. If you’re sent a link to any other site, then it may be a phishing attempt.
You may receive communication that appears to be from Kier asking you to pay for a job application. This will not be from Kier.
Check the email address to ensure it isn’t one from a generic email server eg @outlook.com or @gmail.com.
If you receive a request to apply for a role from Kier and have concerns regarding its legitimacy, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Kier will never request monies in order to process a job application or to be paid into personal bank accounts.
If you believe you have been a victim of phishing, please contact your bank and if you are in the UK, then please report the incident to Action Fraud.
Other countries should have a similar reporting service for fraud. Please see your respective countries' fraud reporting services.
