“Refer-A-Friend” (“RAF”) Scheme

Terms & Conditions


We are always on the lookout for talented and dedicated individuals to come and join our team. In recognition of this we offer a bonus scheme to existing employees. There is no limit on the amount of people you can recommend.

If an existing employee recommends a friend or family member who is recruited, then successfully completes their screening and first 3 months of employment, you will be paid a £250 bonus in the month following the end of 3 months after the new employee’s start date.

To recommend a friend or family member, please ensure that the person applying for a job states on their application form after their interview that they were introduced by you in the “Please confirm how you learned of this role?” section.

Boosted Referral Bonus

In time-limited periods of boosted referral bonuses, the date at which the applicant contacted us will be used. They may still “contact us” through applying directly on our careers.glenholme.org.uk website, by emailing jobs@glenholme.org.uk, or in-person. Applications recorded after the time-limited period will return to the normal bonus amount stated above.

Terms and Conditions

The “Refer-a-Friend” (“RAF”) Terms and Conditions should be read in conjunction the “Employee Handbook”. Where there is conflict between the “Refer a Friend” Terms and Conditions and the “Employee Handbook” the specific Terms and Conditions from the “Refer-a-Friend” scheme shall apply, but all other provisions within the “Employee Handbook” shall remain in full force and effect.

By referring a friend, acting on a referral, using the scheme, or otherwise participating in the scheme, the referring employee and/or referred friend agree to be bound by these Terms.

  1. The individual who is named on the applicant’s application form in the “Please confirm how you learned of this role?” field will be considered to be the “Referring Employee”.
  1. To refer friends, the employee must have, at minimum, completed their first week of employment with Glenholme Healthcare Group or one of its subsidiaries. This is defined as seven days after the employee’s start date.
  1. The referral programs are only applicable to some available positions within Glenholme Healthcare Group or its subsidiaries.

  1. The Qualified Referred Friend must complete their first 3 months of employment to a satisfactory level at their line manager’s discretion including attendance, job performance, incidents and any other deciding factors. Disciplinary action against the Qualified Referred Friend will result in disqualification from this scheme.
  1. Referring employees will receive a reward associated with the scheme they are eligible for, each time a Qualified Referred Friend lists the Referring employee on their application form. You will not receive a reward if your referrals are not considered Qualified Friends for any reason, (including, if the Referred Friend does not satisfy the requirements to be considered a Qualified Friend).
  1. Rewards are applied to the Referring Employee’s payslip and we will notify the Referring Employee by email when rewards have been applied within 48 hours.

  1. A Referring Employee should not engage in any misleading, deceptive, annoying, or harassing practices with respect to referrals or Scheme communications. Spam and the use of purchased or harvested lists is prohibited.
  1. The reward is paid as part of the Referring Employee’s regular pay slip and cannot be exchanged for cash-in-hand or received as a pay advance.
  1. If the Referring Employee leaves employment with Glenholme Healthcare Group for any reason, then they are no longer eligible for this scheme and any pending bonuses will be forfeit.
  1. Offer not valid and rewards are not payable for self-referrals and fraudulent applications. Abuse of this program will be considered gross misconduct by the company, resulting in disciplinary action or termination of employment.
  1. Glenholme Healthcare Group reserves the right to cancel, alter, amend, suspend, withdraw or terminate the Refer-a-Friend Program or to change these terms and conditions at any time in its sole discretion. In the event that the scheme is cancelled, any pending bonuses or rewards will still be carried out under the latest version of these terms & conditions prior to the scheme’s cancellation.
  1. The Program and these terms and conditions will be governed by UK Law in England & Wales and any disputes will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the England & Wales.
