Recruitment scams and fake job offers

This is an important notice on fraudulent communications that have been made to members of the public which purport to be on behalf of BPA.

There have been recent incidents of people and companies falsely pretending to recruit on behalf of BPA or people claiming to represent or be affiliated to, BPA. These propositions generally relate to fake recruitment adverts or websites and may involve individuals being notified that their qualifications are suitable for work as a BPA employee and may also involve solicitation for the transfer of money to pay for ‘recruitment expenses’.

These communications are fraudulent. They do not originate from BPA nor are they associated with BPA’s recruitment process.

Please note that BPA (nor any of the organisations that recruit on our behalf) never ask for any money or payments from applicants, at any point in the recruitment process. All individuals who are successful in gaining an offer of employment from BPA, whether directly or indirectly, are always required to go through a formal recruitment process.
We recommend that you remain vigilant about business propositions from people or organisations with whom you are unfamiliar and pay close attention to how website addresses appear in your search engine. Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know. If you receive such requests, we would advise you to contact your local police and provide them with all information you may have from the senders (email addresses, phone/fax details, etc.).

If you are unsure whether contact purporting to originate from BPA is genuine, you can also consult our HR department at
