Urgent notice for job seekers

We have recently become aware of fraudulent job offers falsely claiming to be from Sayona. These malicious individuals are offering fake job opportunities to unsuspecting candidates and requesting sensitive personal and financial information. We want to emphasize that our hiring process primarily focuses on local candidates, and at present, we are not recruiting outside of Canada.

Sayona’s official recruitment procedure

All applications must be submitted through the career section on the official Sayona website.

Selected candidates will receive a phone call from our HR team to arrange an interview, either in person or via Microsoft Teams.

All interview-related details and future communications will be sent by a member of our HR team using an email address ending in @sayona.ca.

What is recruitment fraud?

Recruitment fraud involves deceptive schemes that offer non-existent job opportunities to job seekers. Typically, this fraud occurs through fake websites, emails, or even LinkedIn profiles, where scammers falsely claim to represent Sayona or act as headhunters. These fraudsters often request personal information and payments as part of their fraudulent recruitment process. It’s important to note that Sayona does not require any financial commitments from applicants as a prerequisite for employment.

How to identify recruitment fraud?

Candidates are contacted through social media platforms like LinkedIn, and interviews are conducted using non-professional systems such as Skype, Telegram, WhatsApp, etc., usually limited to audio only.

Fraudulent job offers often demand financial or personal information early in the process through these non-professional systems. Please be aware that Sayona does not ask for any financial contributions or personal information at any stage of the recruitment process.

Fraudulent offers may even request candidates to book travel arrangements through specific travel agencies, promising reimbursement for travel expenses. However, Sayona is not responsible for such fraudulent offers and advises applicants to follow the aforementioned precautions.

If you suspect that you have received a fraudulent job offer related to Sayona, please email us with the subject line “fraudulent job offer” and promptly contact your local police department to file a complaint.
