Recruitment scams 

You can only apply for jobs at ADNOC via the career’s portal found on our website While we do actively seek out talented people to recruit to our business, and the ADNOC Group maintains a professional LinkedIn account, all correspondence will always come from an email address. 
However, sometimes the identity of ADNOC or one of its subsidiaries is used fraudulently in fake recruitment campaigns and false job offers. 

How do I know if it’s fake? 
The fraudster will often set up a fake recruitment campaign email or website as if it is coming from ADNOC.  
Candidates will usually be asked to provide a CV or other information online or via email, and may be asked to do an online interview questionnaire. There will usually be no face to face interview. 

An offer will be made supposedly from someone representing ADNOC. The offer will tell you that you will need to pay sums of money either direct to the fraudster or to a third party for a visa, work permits, travel costs and so on, in order to accept the job.  

Sometimes the scam will say that you will be reimbursed these costs when you start work with ADNOC. 
If any or all these things are the case, this recruitment is a scam: ADNOC never selects candidates based on an online interview or questionnaire only and we never ask a candidate to pay money in advance. 

Be alert for suspicious signs:  
  • Poor use of language  
  • Use of email addresses like,, – ADNOC emails will only ever come from 
  • Requests for money to be paid in advance 
  • Contact through social websites such as Facebook etc. 

What should I do? 
If you are a victim of an attempted scam, notify local law enforcement. 

Do not respond to unsolicited recruitment offers from sources you cannot independently verify as being legitimate. 
Do not provide personal or financial details to anyone you do not know or trust, or on a website you do not trust. 
You can notify us of any suspected job scam by emailing This email address is only for use to notify ADNOC of any suspected job scam, or to check if a job offer received is valid. Any CVs submitted, enquiries as to vacancies or any other kinds of enquiry will not be reviewed and will not receive a response. 

Be suspicious when dealing with anyone who does not have a direct telephone line/who never answers when you call their number, but returns your call later (from a different number). 
Always independently verify the legitimacy of job offers before you take any decision. 

If an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is. 
Fake recruitment campaigns and job scams are not authorized or connected in any way with ADNOC or its subsidiaries. ADNOC and its subsidiaries are not responsible for them. This means ADNOC and its subsidiaries have no responsibility for any action you take in connection with a scam. We won’t be liable for any loss you suffer in connection with a scam.
