Recently multiple emails are appearing every day from employermatch.co.uk and the same messages from careercandy.com and wherejobs.co.uk
The titles of the emails are strange, such as:-
- Help Requested
- Urgent Tesco Openings in Walton-on-Thames
There is no Tesco in Walton-on-Thames and there isn’t one planned.
- Urgent ASDA Employment in Weybridge
There is no ASDA in Weybridge – the nearest is about 10 miles away.
- Cabin Crew needed in Walton-on-Thames
No airplanes in Walton-on-Thames that I know of.
Employer Match is not a recruitment agency and does not appear to have any jobs to advertise.
Instead they copy job adverts from recruitment agencies and present them as if their own and send out huge volumes of emails with misleading titles and misleading content.
e.g. one email had a Librarian Assistant as the first job vacancy but if you click on it then the site changes to Retail Choice advertising site, showing an assistant manager job vacancy – nothing to do with libraries.
On the Employer Match website there is a search facility – if you put Library assistant and press search – it tells you there are 1,355 Library Assistant jobs near Weybridge. I would guess that there are at most half a dozen such job vacancies within the whole of Surrey and it would need hundreds of libraries to employ a total of 1,355 Library assistants. Weybridge has just one library with only a handful of staff in total.
How does Employer Match make money from their spam emails and website?
That is unknown. It’s possible they get paid for every click from their messages to a recruitment website.
The website claims the company is registered in Poole, Dorset but the home page shows jobs in America and the website seems to be hosted from America.
It does seem to be a strange new form of Marketing that is producing huge amounts of misleading spam messages.
