Job scam - Select Healthcare RecruitmentWatch
I thought it was worth posting as a warning to anyone looking for physiotherapy assistant/therapy assistant work - there is currently a job scam operating in London.
The company are using a few different names - Select Healthcare Recruitment, 2020 Recruitment Group, their website is www.selectrec.co.uk - tel. 020 7190 9897.
This company is using job search websites such as reed.co.uk to advertise healthcare assistant positions but don't specify which clinic/hospital you're applying for, just the area. You'll complete a telephone interview, after which they'll tell you they'd like to take you on, but you're required to complete a training course. They'll then ask you to pay for the course over the phone (usually £200-£240), needless to say there is no job or training course and they'll disappear with your money. They're currently being investigated but they're still operating, so please avoid at ALL COSTS. If you need any more info I'm happy to provide.
Stay safe out there - mad that people are preying on people searching for jobs in healthcare

They've been banned from reed.co.uk but are just posting the same jobs via different websites now. The latest is this one:
Makes me so angry that these people are preying on people looking for healthcare jobs in the middle of a pandemic!
If you need any more convincing it's a scam - just google "Aps Financial Ltd"
Guys, the same thing happened to me...I applied to a job as a clinical support assistant through REED (the application only required to send my CV). Yesterday I got a call from someone called Adam Sanchez (020 3880 7141) who told me he was calling from SH Recruitment (the same company which seems to have advertised the job on REED) and that the call was about a Clinical Support Assistant job I had applied to on REED. He told me about this job giving me details of salary (14 pounds an hour) and he said that in order to do the interview I should have done a training course called CPR and Patient Handling which was required for the job. He said the training course was £ 199 plus £ 50 admin fee (to pay in advance) and that it would take place in Fleet Street. After that, an interview would take place. I got suspicious and told him I would call him back on Monday. The guy seemed very legit on the phone as he was telling me about the job, but I got suspicious when I checked that the same course was advertised at around £ 120 online and when I could not find his LinkedIn profile. A couple of hours later I sent an email to the address I found in the REED confirmation email when I applied for the job to ask him more questions, and realized that the address did not match the one on SH Recruitment website. I then looked up the phone number he called me from and discovered your thread, so thank you. Thank god I didn't give my bank details or anything, I am just a bit worried because my CV shows my home address. I don't think SH Recruitment is a scam but the guy uses their name when he calls, be careful!
Same thing happened to me . I just read all this thi gs on internet. I ve done the courses and i payed it. Eventualy they will send the certificates or anything? What we can do with this people?
Hello, the same thing happened to me. Would you be able to give me any information about your experience? Where you went that day, who was the trainer, who did you speak with to attend the event, how you paid for the course etc? I am trying to track these people down and any information you have would be really useful.
