Beware of scams: Protect yourself from fraudulent messages

At Diversifying Group, we're committed to your safety and security. We would like to ask our candidates to beware of a current scam that targets job seekers. Fraudsters may reach out to you impersonating consultants with job opportunities or offers in order to get your personal information or request payment. It's crucial to be vigilant and verify the authenticity of any messages you receive.

Recruitment scams are not always obvious. Here are a few tips on how to identify a fraudulent message:

  • It’s from an unknown phone number, country code or email address.

  • It contains a link; these may contain malware that could be installed on your device so avoid clicking on these.

  • It contains sudden requests for payment or pressure to act quickly.

  • It contains poor spelling and/or grammar.

  • It contains unrealistic salary or working arrangements - if it’s too good to be true it probably is.


For your safety, we strongly advise:

  • Do not respond to these messages.

  • Do not share any personal information, banking details, or make any payments requested through these messages.

  • Report the scam message to your local authorities or the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) through their official website for further investigation.


At Diversifying Group, we might contact you by text message, however:

  • Initial contact will usually be via an email address containing @diversifying.com or via LinkedIn.

  • We never send job offers or requests for personal information via text message to individuals who have not registered with our agency.

  • We will never ask a candidate to pay fees as part of the recruitment process.

  • We have an office phone number on our website, so you can give us a call if you’re not sure of anything.


Stay alert and safeguard yourself against fraudulent activity. If you have any doubts or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly using the contact details below:

Careers with Diversifying Group

Inclusion is at the heart of what we do. We’re very proud of our working culture and make every effort to ensure everyone can feel as comfortable as possible at work, so you can be your authentic self everyday.

Through our work, we’re supporting people and organisations on their journeys to becoming genuinely inclusive. Come and be a part of the change!

We believe everyone should work in a way that suits them. That’s why we operate a hybrid working model, where we ask our team to join in-person strategy (and fun!) days once a month in our London office. Outside of these, you’re free to work from home, no matter where in the UK you live. And since not everyone enjoys working from home, our London co-working space is always open for our team to use whenever they need.

Wellbeing

Our people are at the heart of everything we do, and it is imperative to us that everyone is happy and healthy at work and that staff are afforded a positive work-life balance.

We genuinely believe that work is a place that can have a positive impact on maintaining good mental wellbeing when purpose, structure and a sense of belonging is provided. At Diversifying Group, we recognise that it is our responsibility to create a safe and supportive environment where people feel comfortable having open and honest conversations. Struggling with mental or physical health can prove such an isolating experience and knowing that the organisation you work with actively addresses this can go a long way to alleviate a potential source of additional worry.

What are we doing to support wellbeing?

  • Options to work flexibly and remotely. We pride ourselves on our culture of flexibility and balance for all our team
  • End of year extended company break of at least 3 days in addition to annual leave
  • Affording employees the time and space to talk about their wellbeing to their managers in regular check-ins
  • Staff members who are trained mental health first aiders and can offer support when needed
  • Ad-hoc self-care and wellness days, allowing everyone in the organisation some time off to take a pause and recharge
  • Monthly team building activities
