They've got an ad in our local paper for data entry clerks which I was quite tempted by, but I can't find anything about the actual company on the internet/in the phone book. I don't want to phone the number they've given until I'm sure they're genuine as it almost sounds to good to be true - 9.30 - 2.30 so perfect school run hours.
They've got lots of job ads over the internet for offices throughout the UK, & their Head Office address is 54 St Johns Square, but it looks like it might be a mailing address.
Can anyone shed any light? If it's a perfectly legitimate company then apologies to all concerned, and gizzajob!
Thanks dilemma456. This seemed such a dull thread title I'd resigned myself to no answers, so your efforts are very much appreciated!
Having discussed it with dp, have decided to ignore the ad as it seems dodgy in so many ways. On top of everything else, for such a supposedly big/successful company, the ad has too many spelling/grammar errors which makes me think of those scam e-mails which promise the earth. Ds says he likes me being at home so perhaps it's for the best.
I called them today in relation to their ad in our local paper. Answerphone requested I leave name & number & they will call back. They specifically requested you leave a MOBILE no. I didnt leave either, I agree does seem dodgy.
I responded to the ad by leaving my mobile number on the answerphone last Friday as requested. I received a text yesterday asking me to call an 0844 number asap and to quote "new applicant". I called the number and am currently waiting to speak to an operator - I have been holding for 47 minutes and I am now no. 7 in the queue (started at no.28). Will post a note when I get through to an operator!
I have called this Company and I have an interview with them next week. I have been told they already have people working for them. I have already visited their Office in Leeds and it looks new. I can tell you these are not a scam & they have never asked me for any money at all. I have checked with BT the 0844 is charged at 5p per minute during the day & 2p after 6pm & at weekends. So if you have been asked to contact them I would go for this Job. This is definately NOT a scam.
This one sounds very dubious, but the charity one you have linked to sounds very very very unbelievable when taken together with this thread. I think someone should report the charity one (I don't have time, I'm just about to dash out to work)
