Recruitment Scam Alert

There is a recruiting scam involving fraudulent job offer letters using Western Asset’s name and logo.

If you are uncertain whether you are speaking with a Western Asset representative, please contact us at (626) 844-9774 or recruiting@westernasset.com.

Thanks for taking the time to share your skills and experience with Western Asset. We’ll get back to you as soon as we’ve had a chance to review your application.

What to expect in the recruitment process

1. You’ll receive a prompt acknowledgement of your application. If you don’t see it, please check your spam folder.
2. We will carefully consider your application and one of our HR team members will contact you if there is a potential fit and we want to take things further. Your contacts within HR will guide you through the recruitment process and tell you what to expect.
3. Depending on the role, we might ask you to complete online tests, record a video interview, or take part in one or more Webex or telephone interviews. You might also be invited to an assessment day or face-to-face interview, for which expenses will be reimbursed.
4. If you receive and accept a job offer, we will start your onboarding process on receipt of your signed offer letter so that you arrive at Western Asset ready to contribute from day one.
Good luck!
