Candidates who respond to such emails or register with these employment agencies are asked to pay a sum of money by way of a guarantee for the placement. SISD does not collect interview fees from applicants nor does it authorise any employment/recruitment agency to offer and/or execute any employment contracts on behalf of SISD.
