Please be aware of fraudulent job offers. IFAD does not charge fees at any stage of the recruitment process.

Fraudulent job offers may provide an alleged offer of employment with IFAD in return for payments of fees or asking for personal and banking information. Please note that IFAD only advertises its employment opportunities on its global employment website or through established media, newspapers, and online job boards.

Many of these schemes may appear legitimate, since they may feature an IFAD logo, use an official-looking email address, or be sent by individuals purporting to represent IFAD.

Please note that official communications from IFAD will always come from e-mails ending in @ifad.org.

If you believe you could be a victim of a fraudulent job offer please report it immediately to ifad@ifad.org.
