Recruitment scam alert! It has come to our attention that there is a scam circulating, in which the individual(s) involved are posing as members of the Avantium team, under the pretense of hiring for new roles.

As part of our interview process, Avantium always conducts live interview (whether in person or via video call). We do not conduct email/text-based chat interviews nor will we ever ask you for sensitive personal information (eg. banking information) without first providing you with a formal employment contract. Additionally, please pay extra attention to email extensions as Avantium employee e-mail addresses always end with the extension "". 

If you have been contacted by someone claiming be work at Avantium and conducting email or another form of chat-based interviews, we strongly advise you not to engage or share any personal information.
