    Pros

    The people are what had always made Immunocore stand out. The science, of course, is excellent, but without the people and collaboration, you cannot achieve the science.

    I loved my team and job at immunocore and always felt valued. I had a clear path for progression and had the fortune of having been promoted. I felt very supported by my immediate managers. There was some amazing science nd there was such a sense of working together and everyone having their point valued.

    Kontras

    A lot of change - which is never uncommon in the industry, but it left people feeling very uneasy and uncertain. Do not always think that upper management value what they have and some brilliant people have thus left.

    Rat an das Management

    Listen to your staff. Remember that whilst you need good science, good people are important too - and it isn't all about publications and glory. Remember to make people feel appreciated by small gestures of good will. Big public pats on the back are not going to have the same effect. They need to see improvements and to have morale brought up.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im April 2016 bei Immunocore (Abingdon, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The interview was a disgrace. I felt unwelcome from the moment I was called into the meeting room. There was no 'hello' or 'how was your journey' or any icebreaker pleasantries as you would expect. The 4 interviewers appeared to be laughing at me and giving each other conspiring, shifty looks when I walked in, and tried to stifle their laughs (albeit not very well). Whether they were laughing at me (my mannerisms are a little unorthodox, admittedly) or some inside joke (such as a blanket-emailed viral skateboarding cat video), I will never know. It was still incredibly unprofessional, insulting and intimidating. Needless to say, this absolutely undermined my performance for the rest of the interview. To put it frankly, it reminded me of cliquey children teasing in a playground. These were senior managers! ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING!

    The rest of the interview was not very pleasant either. Throughout the entire interview, they seemed hellbent to to catch me out with their questions. Normally, an interview is a pleasant professional 2-way dynamic dialogue in which both interviewer and interviewee say their piece, but this was far from that. They were very cold and unfriendly throughout. I could tell that I wasn't welcome there. My feeling is that they already had a (possibly internal) candidate in mind, and they only called me so they could fulfill an interview quota (and get some light entertainment out of it).

    Through previous email correspondence with HR, I was informed beforehand that there would be a lab tour after. And yet, as the interview was drawing to a close after (what seemed like) 20 minutes, I could tell that the interviewers were ready to bid me farewell. So I had to ask for a lab tour, as promised in the email. At that point, the interviewers looked hesitantly at each other as though they had been greatly inconvenienced, but agreed. The gentleman showing me around was warm, friendly and helpful, in stark contrast to the interviewers. The lab looked busy and well-equipped and (aside from the harrowing interview) seemed like a place I would like to work.

    As shocked and appalled as I was by the interviewers' behaviour, I sincerely believe that it was not representative of Immunocore as a company. Immunocore is an innovative biotech company with a pipeline of ImmTAC biotherapeutics focussing on a range of immuno-oncology diseases. ImmTACs are bi-specific molecules with both anti-CD3 scFv for tumour recognition and T-cell receptor to activate a T-cell response to destroy cancer cells. I applaud Immunocore's work and would have genuinely loved to have contributed towards this.

    The experience was so traumatic, I cried on the train journey home. It shattered my spirits for days to come. What hurt the most was not being taken seriously. For them, it might be another 20 minutes in the meeting room tick-box checklisting just another candidate who they have no intention of hiring. For me, it was several weeks of intense preparation and psyching myself up, not to mention travelling half-way across the country for this kangaroo court of an interview.

    Needless to say, even if offered the role, I would not accept it!

    A message to hiring managers: Please conduct yourself well in an interview, because as well as assessing candidates, you too will be assessed, and your conduct reflects that of the company! Please take recruitment seriously and don't joke around in the interview room. Please save it for tea breaks or Friday after-work drinks down the pub. There is a time and place for recalling that cat video, or the revelry of last years Xmas party, but the interview room is not the place! Please treat every interviewee with dignity and respect. Please attempt to see beyond the exterior of the individual, without preconception, prejudging or stereotyping. 'Weird' is not necessarily bad. Sometimes, the most unlikely borderline-case candidates may turn out to be the most suitable new hires!
