Kenya Airways (KQ) has warned Kenyans against an advert asking Kenyans to apply for jobs that will see them be paid Sh60,000 a month as their salary.

In a statement released on Monday, January 16, 2023, KQ noted that the fake advert asked those interested in working as recruit clerks, toll attendants, and cleaners to apply. It also said that the deal was linked to the China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC).

Those interested in any of the above-mentioned positions were told to note it down in the email subject lines when sending their curriculum vitae.

KQ said that it usually published its vacancies within the organization on its official LinkedIn page, which has over 271,111 followers.

“Beware of fake job advertisements associated with Kenya Airways. All KQ vacancies are posted on our LinkedIn channel. Do not be conned,” the statement read in part.

In the advert, successful candidates were informed that they have a chance of negotiating their salaries after three months which they will be working under probation.

The fake notice asked the applicants that they were also supposed to send their CVs before January 22, 2023.

Those considered qualified candidates should have scored D+ level and be in a position to work independently without being followed up by their bosses.

The fake advert said that the job was available only for great team players with great communication skills. They should also be aware that KQ is a fast-changing job environment.

Other qualifications include being extremely motivated, disciplined, paying attention to detail, and able to cope with stressful situations.

The country has seen an upsurge in the number of job scams adverts that have risen in the recent past.

It is suspected that the main reason such adverts have been on the increase is the rising unemployment rate in the country.
