Recruitment fraud

It has come to our attention that the Arup name is being used in recruitment scams. Unfortunately, fraud is an ever-present danger and can happen through social media accounts, fake websites, online job boards or email accounts claiming to be from our firm. By making you aware of this, we hope to avoid and ultimately stop people falling victim to these scams. Please do not provide any personal or financial information and do not send any money to anyone you suspect of recruitment fraud.

What are signs of recruitment fraud?

  • The email does not come from an official Arup email address and instead has been sent from a free web-based email account such as: Gmail, Yahoo or AOL

  • You receive an offer of employment without having attended a formal interview process

  • There is an insistence on urgency

  • There is an early request for personal information such as address details, date of birth, CV (resume) etc.

How to protect yourself

  • All genuine open job vacancies with Arup can be found on our careers website

  • In the majority of cases Arup employment processes entail personal interviews so if you haven’t taken part in an interview process please be vigilant regarding fraudulent activity

  • Arup would never request payment from potential or prospective employees. This would go against our business conduct guidelines and ethical practices. If you are asked to provide this it is not a legitimate offer of employment

If at any point you suspect or receive a suspicious communication from someone suggesting they work for Arup or a website claiming to be affiliated with Arup, please forward the communication to us or report the incident by email to [email protected] or in writing to Cyber Security Incident Response Team, 8 Fitzroy Street, London, W1T 4BJ as soon as possible.
