Health jobs not for sale

The Gauteng Department of Health warns that members of the community must not fall victim to a jobs-for-cash-scam doing the rounds at various hospitals and clinics in the province.
According to the department, the scam requests job applicants to deposit money in exchange for employment. It should be noted, however, that government vacancies are not for sale and they are not advertised through social media platforms. The department only advertises vacancies through channels like the Gauteng Online portal, the Department of Public Service and Administration website, the Department of Health website and national newspapers.
Furthermore, employment application forms at hospitals and clinics are dropped in designated boxes and are processed by human resources personnel according to set procedures.
Anyone who is approached and promised a job in exchange for money should report the matter to the police so that the allegations can be investigated and the perpetrators brought to justice.
According to Carletonville Hospital’s communications officer, Mr Matabo Letsoalo, he has heard of a man calling himself ‘Mr Moloi’, who has been promising health jobs to people in the area.
‘He is quite soft-spoken and people tend to believe him. Normally, these people tell you to deposit money through Money Market so that it is difficult to trace them later,’ Letsoalo told the Herald.
Residents who want more information can contact the Gauteng Provincial Government public liaison hotline at 08600 11 000.
