  • Q
Fraudulent Job Offers Warning
  • A

Fidessa has become aware of emails containing ‘job offers’ purporting to come from Fidessa personnel. These offers may request the potential employee to provide personal details such as bank account information or upfront payments for equipment. Any such communication has absolutely no connection with Fidessa and we do not ask candidates to make any up-front payments as part of our recruitment and selection process. We will only directly offer you a role after a formal interview and do not request credit card details or other personal financial information from potential employment candidates.


If you have been the victim of recruitment fraud or have received a fraudulent communication, we advise you to report the incident to the police.
