How to spot a fraudulent job posting, email or other recruitment-related communication:

The job application is on a non-Glencore website.
All of our official job postings are hosted on Although our jobs may be advertised on third-party sites such as LinkedIn, the application itself is always on the site above.
Someone asks for bank details before we’ve made an official job offer.
We never ask for your bank details until we’ve made an official offer, and we will always ask for your details using an official email address or other official communication channel.
You receive a job offer for a role you’ve not applied for.
Before you can receive a job offer, you will always have applied for the job first, and will have been through our selection process, including a face-to-face interview. If this hasn’t yet happened, then it’s not an official job and you should not take it any further.
