​​Jobs-for-cash scam​​

The Gauteng Department of Health is calling on community members to be vigilant and not fall victim to jobs-for-cash scam doing rounds at various hospitals and clinics in the province. 

The scam requests job applicants to deposit money in exchange for employment. It should be noted, however, that government vacancies are not for sale and they are not advertised through social media platforms. 

The Department advertises vacancies through appropriate and trustworthy channels such as the Gauteng Online portal, Department of Public Service and Administration website, Department of Health website and national newspapers. 

Furthermore, employment application forms at our hospitals and clinics are dropped in designated boxes which are processed by human resources personnel as per procedures. 

Anyone approached and promised a job in exchange for money should report that to the South African Police Services so such allegations are investigated and perpetrators are brought to justice. Gauteng Provincial Government Public Liaison Hotline: 08600 11 000
