The Embassy of Switzerland in Nairobi warns of employment offers posted by an organization who requests payments for certain tests as part of their recruitment process. In addition it is pretending a close partnership with The Swiss Agency for Development & Cooperation (SDC).

In this context the Embassy wishes to clarify that the organization concerned does not receive any Swiss Government funding, nor is there any cooperation between that organization and SDC contrary to what is claimed on its website.

Furthermore the Embassy strongly recommends not to pay any amount in such or any related processes nor to send any personal information about your own or another person.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Embassy, if you have any questions or doubts.
