Notice on Recruitment Fraud

Recruitment fraud from groups pretending to be SLB—or claiming to represent SLB—may be sent in a variety of formats, including e-mail, text, social media and letter.

Most often, an e-mail is sent offering employment with SLB. These e-mails often look legitimate and will include details of the employment supposedly on offer, such as job description, salary, and benefits. They usually request payment from prospective employees to obtain visas or immigration documents. You may be referred to an organization that requests fees for processing the documents. In some cases you may be told you will be reimbursed for all the costs.

Please be vigilant to fraudulent activity if you receive a communication or e-mail regarding potential employment, or an invitation to submit applications to a public email address, supposedly from SLB.
