Fraudulent job offers

Ophir Energy has been made aware of emails circulating containing ‘job offers’ purporting to come from us. We believe that the intention of these fraudulent offers may be to obtain personal information or sums of money.

Any such communication has absolutely no connection with Ophir Energy and we do not ask candidates to make any up-front payments as part of our recruitment and selection process.

We will only directly offer you a role after a formal recruitment process has been followed.

The following may indicate that you have been the target of fraudulent recruitment:

  • Email communication does not end with a ‘’ e-mail address.
  • The email or subsequent correspondence requests money transfers or personal data.

If you are unsure whether a job advert or job offer is genuine, please email  and we will confirm whether or not the communication is legitimate.

If you have been the victim of recruitment fraud or have received a fraudulent communication, we advise you to report the incident to the police or to Action Fraud, the UK’s national fraud reporting centre (
