Unfortunately, there are people or agencies who will take advantage of students who are looking for part time jobs - for example asking for money up front or your bank or financial information when you apply.
These are not always illegal, but often they exploit loopholes or grey areas in the law, or rely on the applicant not reading and understanding what they are getting into.
These are often called 'scams', or in some cases 'phishing', if they are attempts to obtain your financial/personal data for fraudulent purposes.
Please let Solent Futures staff know if you are concerned about a company or agency you are applying to, especially if they are advertising with us on Solent Graduate Jobs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop in and see us in the Solent Futures Centre (RM001).
