Recruitment Fraud Alert

NORR has been made aware that the design consulting industry is currently the target of widespread recruitment fraud efforts.

The fraudulent schemes being perpetrated occur when the fraudsters claim to either be from NORR’s internal human resources department or external recruitment agents. The fraudsters connect with their target via social media websites, email, text, letters, faxes, phone calls and other electronic messaging platforms. These communications typically contain NORR’s logo, contact details, office location, career description, salary terms, benefits and often appear to be bonafide. These communications are not valid and do not originate from NORR.

The fraudster then requires the target to either: (i) visit an accommodation website and make an upfront payment to cover initial housing and document processing (i.e. visas); and/or (ii) provide personal information such as passport information, social security numbers, and bank details.

Candidates should be aware that:

  • NORR and its recruitment agents will never ask a candidate for payments for any reason as part of the recruitment process. Candidates should not send money to NORR or anyone purporting to be a NORR agent.
  • As part of the interview process NORR will never ask candidates for social security/insurance numbers, passport numbers or bank account information.
  • All NORR email communications will come from an email address.
  • All prospective candidates are required to apply through the NORR Careers page

If you have been the victim of a fraud by sending money or personal private information to the fraudster, then please report this incident to the appropriate law enforcement agency in the country where you reside.

If you believe you are currently the target of such a fraud, then please contact NORR’s HR team at in order to verify that the communications are originating from NORR.
