Fraudulent Job Adverts

February 2024

It has come to our attention that there are misleading job adverts claiming to be from the embassy but are, in fact, scams. The Australian Embassy in Morocco is currently not advertising for any job openings.

Please note the following:

- The embassy is aware of these fraudulent activities and is working to address them.
- The only trusted website for legitimate job opportunities is the embassy's official website.
- Exercise caution when encountering job offers from unknown sources.
- Do not provide personal information to unverified websites or individuals.
- Verify the authenticity of any job advertisement by contacting the embassy directly.

Your safety and security are our top priorities. Please report any suspicious job advertisements or concerns to the embassy.
