The Employer’s perspective

Ben Howells, Recruitment Manager at Immunocore

The Brief:

Immunocore is a privately funded biotechnology company. We work in a cutting-edge area of biotech science on Immuno-Oncology and infectious disease. We’ve been running for around 15 years and have 465 employees with around 35 of those based in the US.

The Approach:

When we were looking for someone to fill the role, technical competencies were vital. First and foremost, we were looking for someone who could actually do the job. As a contractor, a cultural fit is a secondary concern. For the initial strategy, we first and foremost went to Allen Associates - we use them exclusively. They’re local and we have a great relationship.

The Outcomes:

Christina is still here and is doing incredibly well. This is in no small way down to a clear and exhaustive brief followed by Allen Associates. It’s also a testament to our strong relationship with them. They know us and they know who we like, so we knew Christina would succeed when we hired her. She’s done exceptionally well due to her skills in collaboration, openness, honesty and sensitivity. Christina has just the right experience to succeed.

Turn down the volume

At Allen Associates we understand it’s about quality not volume. We get to know you and your business properly so when we send you a candidate they’ll be the best possible fit.
