We reward all successful referrals with vouchers. Do you know anyone looking for their next role? Why not refer them to us. Petrolina’s story below shows how simple it is...

healthnews4Petrolina Akwolu has worked with Hays for over a year in a variety of hospitals including Brentwood Community Hospital, Broomfield Hospital, Basildon & Thurrock NHS Trust, Medway Hospital, as an RGN and a specialist community nurse.

“I actually started part time but soon realised Hays could offer me full time work. I was informed by my consultant, Wayne Campbell, about the Refer a Friend scheme run by Hays and have since recommended several friends to join Hays as the work offered provides me with great flexibility and I am sure others would like to enjoy the same benefits.

Applying was simple, all I had to do was give my consultant a friend’s name and contact number. Hays followed up with registering the nurse and monitored the hours worked so that I can be paid on time for my referral”

Petrolina was particularly impressed by the efficiency of Hays in making her reward available.

“As soon as my friend had worked the required hours my consultant let me know and sent me the referral amount of £250 in retail vouchers which I can spend in a variety of shops.

I referred Comfort Oji to Hays who has since been working as a community nurse in Brentwood. I have since referred several other nurses as the process is made easy by my consultant. Comfort is an agency nurse and a friend I have worked with before on other bookings. I felt that she would satisfy the requirements that I believe Hays are looking for.”

“I have never been out of work since working through Hays”, continues Petrolina “and they offer me flexibility of shifts and hospitals to work in.”

“I am pleased to say that she has the same experience as me, and receives regular full time work, mostly on-going bookings. I believe Comfort has already referred another nurse.”
