Multiple fraud attempts using the Adecco name have been reported to us in several countries. Please be aware that NO Adecco or Akkodis representative will ever request payment of any kind from a candidate or an associate during a job search or a selection process.

From time to time we are informed that the ADECCO name is are being used without our authorization by persons who are in no way related to the Adecco Group. These persons place job adverts on general market websites using the name ‘Adecco’ without our permission with the goal to collect data or payments from potential candidates.
