Recruitment scam alert

23 February 2024

We have received reports from overseas candidates being targeted by scammers offering jobs with hospitals in New Zealand.

The scammers are phishing for personal information and money from victims. They are also requesting individuals to send their original passports by courier to the Department of Internal Affairs in New Zealand. 

Please be assured that MercyAscot will never ask you to send money or your original passport to us or a government agency.

If you have any concerns, please contact [email protected].nz
