Global Recruiters, Dubai, UAE

Global Recruiters (not Gulf Recruitment or Recruiters) is the name of what appears to be a Job recruitment organisation in Dubai. We say "appears" because there are several indicators that make us question whether they really do what they claim, in addition to numerous forum postings on the internet from people who claim they have been victims of a scam or hoax from a Global Recruiters (or Global Recruitment Resources - same place different name) organisation. Note that there are several organisations with similar names around the world, which are not connected to the dubious Dubai agency.

Header description: Global Recruiters in Dubai, Global Recruitment. ESL and EFL teaching jobs in the UAE with high salaries at fake schools. Teacher vacancies advertised in Dubai are scams to trick people into paying bogus visa and work permit fees.

Note that Gulf Recruitment is a real organisation with real jobs, based in India; The Gulf Recruitment Group is also real, and based in Dubai; and Gulf Talent is also a real recruitment company with real jobs, based in Dubai.

The Global Recruiters company that Dubai teachers should be concerned with, says on their website that they have offices in Dubai and London. The Dubai office address doesn't make sense to us for a number of reasons, and indicates at the very least, an unfamiliarity with Dubai that should be a warning sign to any job applicants. Here's a list of organisations that might or probably have connections to Global Recruiters (and the relevant discussion topic in the forum where you can add your own comments, and read previous comments)...

Information pages and/or other institutes and organisations with similar job advertisements (be careful, confirm the organisation and job exists before applying, and don't send any money for visas or other claimed expenses).

Other possible job scams (might not be directly associated with Global Recruitment but all the red flags are similar or the same)

If you spot any more, add the name to the Global Recruiters forum topic and we'll try and find out more. Red flags and scam alerts are one or more of the following:

There were also hospital jobs advertised by Global Recruiters which appeared to be for a non-existent hospital. This page will be updated when we find out more.

Some of the websites that appear to be connected to Global Recruiters. Note the clever way they've got official looking websites for a couple of UAE government organisations - they have even framed the official website in their own website to give them an air of legitimacy. The domain extension .tk is for the Tokelau Islands, and the domain names are available free to anyone on request.

Update February 2008

The Gulf News (a UAE newspaper) investigated Global Recruiters and called them a bogus or scam operation. The UAE authorities said they would block some of the Global Recruiters websites, but that is only effective in the UAE. Teachers overseas will still be able to access the websites and still be able to fall victim to the scam.
