British Journalist Passes Four Binance Interviews for Top Position With No Experience, Almost Rs 17 Million Salary
Journalist Harry Clinch has completed four interviews with Binance for the position of senior futures regulatory advisor. Clinch himself wrote about this in an author’s column on the Disruption Banking blog. He was interested in understanding how reliable Binance’s recruitment processes are in the face of international regulatory pressure.
For the sake of experiment, the Briton created a fake account on LinkedIn under the pseudonym of Daniel Somerset. In his resume, Clinch indicated that he graduated from Cambridge Law School and also worked in anti-money laundering departments at leading banks. It has been mentioned that Somerset even held a senior position at Coinbase. Of course, in reality, Somerset (that is, Clinch) does not have such skills and experience.
However, this did not prevent the journalist from undergoing four interviews at Binance, after which he was offered a job at Binance with an annual salary of £160,000 (~₽16.7 million). He also noted that he became eligible for a bonus payout of £60,000 (₽6.2 million) in binance coin (BNB) after six months of work.
Conditional Arrangements on Binance
Clinch claims that the entity that officially offered him the job was Binance Europe, which is not registered with the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), unlike the vast majority of UK financial services companies.
However, how exactly he passed the interview remains unclear. The British journalist has not yet presented any concrete evidence, but promised to publish a continuation of the story in the twentieth of January.
The story has already been responded to in Binance. It said all positions are initially offered on a “conditional basis and are subject to a rigorous review process” by an “independent third party.” About whom exactly there is a speech, in a stock exchange did not specify.
“His [Клинча] fraudulent claims and a falsified work history would be easily detected, ”Binance assures.
Recall that earlier the crypto-exchange carried out personnel changes for the CIS market. The former head of the Reporting Collection and Processing Department at the Bank of Russia, Olga Goncharova, will help Binance build “systemic interaction with authorities” both in the Russian Federation and throughout the CIS. In addition to Goncharova, the exchange has also appointed Tokenbox co-founder Vladimir Smerkis to the position of Director of Binance in Russia, and Kirill Khomyakov to the position of General Manager in Ukraine.
