It has been brought to our attention that there have recently been instances of fraudulent job offers, purporting to be from Novo Nordisk and/or its affiliate companies. The individuals or organizations sending these false employment offers may pose as a Novo Nordisk recruiter or representative and request personal information, purchasing of equipment or funds to further the recruitment process or offer paid trainings. Be advised that Novo Nordisk does not extend unsolicited employment offers. Furthermore, Novo Nordisk does not charge prospective employees with fees or make requests for funding as a part of the recruitment process.
