Update on FIRS 2023 Recruitment Exercise: The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has issued a warning to Nigerians interested in working for the organization to be cautious of con artists who continue to pose as recruitment agents with the intention of defrauding the general public.
Johannes Oluwatobi Wojuola, the FIRS’s Special Assistant on Media & Communication to the Chairman, made this clear in a statement.
He said that the agency has told people to be careful and not fall for recruitment swindlers, who promise to hire them and ask for a lot of money in exchange for the promise of employment.
“Again, the Management of the FIRS wishes to caution the public to be wary of these employment scam artists.
“The Service wishes to emphatically state that it is not conducting any recruitment at the moment, and importantly that it does not conduct recruitment exercises through back door channels. Should the FIRS at any instance have needed to expand its workforce and consequently seek to recruit competent hands to carry out the task of revenue mobilization for the nation, the public can rest assured that the Service would follow appropriate channels and processes in doing so; including advertisements on public channels of communication, followed by rigorous screening, interviews, and examination exercises.
“The FIRS also wishes to caution media practitioners not to allow their mediums to be used as platforms for publishing unauthorized fake application processes and recruitment portals that hoodwink the unsuspecting public. The Service would take all necessary legal action against any platform found to be engaged in such fraudulent advertisement” .
