Beware of Recruitment Fraud
At Barinthus Biotherapeutics we are committed to ensuring the safety of the life science community. We have been made aware of recruitment-related fraud using Barinthus Biotherapeutics name and wish to equip job seekers with essential knowledge they need to identify and prevent fraud.
Communication: all emails from Barinthus Biotherapeutics will use the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We will never email you from any third party service such as Outlook, Gmail or Yahoo.
Recruitment agencies: Barinthus Biotherapeutics typically try to fill all roles ourselves for a period of 2 to 4 weeks before we engage third party recruitment agencies. If a new position has only recently been advertised on our careers site or on LinkedIn it is unlikely we will be working with recruitment agencies at that time. Recruitment agencies are used by us occasionally, but only when we have been unable to fill the role ourselves.
We do not charge fees: At Barinthus Biotherapeutics we do not charge candidates fees at any stage in the recruitment process. If you are being asked for money this is a scam.
Personal details: We will never ask for your bank details or ID before you are offered a job.
Our interview process: Candidates will typically go through several stages of interview before they are offered a job with us, often being invited to our site to meet the team in person. We will never offer you a job without first interviewing you.
Verify with us: If you’re concerned about potential fraud please forward the communication to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for us to verify if it is real. If you believe you have been a victim of recruitment fraud we also suggest you consider reporting this to your local law enforcement agency.
