It has come to our attention that members of the public are receiving phishing spam emails purportedly from the “Shell Kenya Recruitment Manager”. These emails are also being circulated on social media platforms. The emails purport to inform unsuspecting members of the public that their names have been forwarded from Shell Global, that they have been invited for interviews at the Laiboni Centre in Nairobi, and that they should send a processing fee of Kshs 2000 to a certain Mpesa number.

Vivo Energy Kenya, would like to inform all that these are phishing emails/messages that did not emanate from the company, and are not true.  Vivo Energy Kenya has reported these messages to the social media platforms where they have been spotted.

All Vivo Energy Kenya vacancies are advertised on our resourcing agencies’ websites. Our resourcing agencies are: Career Connections, Hallmark, Altima and NFT Consult.
