Here at the Backpacker Job Board we manually moderate each and every job vacancy which is submitted to the site. This helps us prevent spam job posts from being posted. It means we can review all job descriptions and remove any which are deemed inappropriate. However, preventing dishonest employers or scam vacancies is more difficult.
From time-to time, these types of scam job vacancies will fall through the net. As soon as we become aware of such employers we immediately ban them from our site and remove their job vacancies. To do this we rely on feedback from backpackers.
If you have encountered such a job, please let us know and we remove their job vacancy.
Also, we would like to use your feedback as a warning to other backpackers. Don’t worry we will keep your feedback anonymous and will not disclose your personal details.
Finally, please also make sure you read over our helpful advice on how best to stay safe applying for jobs online.
