We are aware of several people who have received WhatsApp messages from individuals claiming to work for our UK brands, including CBSbutler, The JM Longbridge Group, Clement May, and Butler, Bridge & May. If you have received a message and you don’t recognise the number, please don’t reply to it. Instead, please call your local recruitment office to verify the enquiry. If you’re happy to do so, we may request a screenshot of the message and phone number so that we can continue to report these to WhatsApp and the authorities.
We want to emphasise that this is a serious matter, and we are taking all necessary steps to combat this issue. It has come to our attention that similar warnings have been posted on the websites of various recruitment companies and reputable organisations around the world who are also being targeted by these fraudulent individuals.
At Staffing 360 Solutions and our UK brands, including CBSbutler, The JM Longbridge Group, Clement May, and Butler, Bridge & May, we want to ensure the safety and security of all candidates and individuals seeking opportunities through our platforms. Therefore, we would like to clarify that we will never reach out to new connections via messaging platforms such as WhatsApp. Our official channels of communication include email from our domain names, LinkedIn, and phone calls.
