Recruitment scams

Imperial Oil does not use recruiting or placement agencies that charge candidates an advance fee of any kind (e.g., placement fees, immigration processing fees, etc.).

Unfortunately, we've been made aware of unauthorized individuals using the Imperial Oil name and logo in emails and on web sites in an attempt to solicit up-front fees and personal information from interested job-seekers.

Periodically, Imperial Oil does engage recruiting and/or placement agencies to help us identify potential candidates for specific positions at company expense. If you are contacted by a legitimate recruiting or placement agency, there should be no cost to you, the job-seeker. If you believe you have been the victim of one of these recruiting scams, please contact the Canada Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501. The Canada Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) is Canada's central fraud data repository and is a trusted source for fraud data and for educational and prevention resource materials.
