HOAX: This purported Rubis Energy Kenya job advert is a scam

The oil marketing company has disowned the job advert.

This poster on TikTok and Facebook claiming that oil marketer Rubis Energy Kenya is recruiting pump attendants in Nairobi is a HOAX.

According to the poster, the company is seeking pump attendants who will be based at Rubis’ service stations in Ngara, Westlands, and Moi Avenue.

Prospective job applicants are required to provide their national identification card, medical letter, curriculum vitae, and passport photo.

The advert adds that successful applicants will receive a net salary of KSh18,650. A phone number and an email address have been provided for inquiries.

But, is the job advert authentic?

Although the poster has Rubis Energy Kenya branding, there is no information about the recruitment on the oil marketer’s verified websiteFacebook page, and X account, where it conventionally shares such news with the public.

On 3 October 2023, the company disowned the job advert and urged the public to disregard it.

“Dear job seekers, we’re aware that a fake job alert impersonating our company has been circulating. Please remember that all legitimate job openings from us are only shared through our official social media channels and our official website. Stay vigilant and don’t fall for scams. Your security is our priority,” reads the post.

PesaCheck examined a poster shared on TikTok and Facebook claiming that oil marketer Rubis Energy Kenya is recruiting pump attendants in Nairobi and found it to be a HOAX.
