Safely applying for a job online

Research the company

Check the company out and if you don't recognise them, research the company before applying. You need to be sure that you know enough to understand what the company does and be sure you will be happy working for them.


Never provide confidential information

You should never give out your bank details, PPS number, a copy of passport, etc. until you have met your employer, and started with the company.


Meet your prospective employer face to face

Be wary of foreign companies that do not have a local office or employers offering you a job without meeting you first, whatever reasons they have for doing so.
