UNDP Kenya's e-Recruitment system aims to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the entire recruitment process in particular by ensuring that the process is transparent and that the right candidate for the right job is recruited.

Fraud alert

False vacancy announcements are circulating on various social media platforms, alleging that the Country Office is recruiting temporary election observers for the upcoming presidential elections.  

UNDP Kenya would like to alert members of the public that UNDP as an institution is in no way associated to these announcements. UNDP Kenya would also like to note that all job advertisements are sent out through official channels, not through third party email addresses.

UNDP Kenya strongly recommends that members of the public exercise extreme caution. Responding to fraudulent job advertisements could result in financial loss or identity theft of personal information. UNDP Kenya will not be liable or take any responsibility in any eventuality.

Victims of such scams may also report them to their local law enforcement authorities for appropriate action.  Internet based scams can be reported to the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
