Candidate Referral Scheme

We know that great people know great people. We also know that a personal recommendation is the best way to let people know about the benefits of working with us.

We are very proud of the high number of referrals we receive, and we wanted to find a suitable way of saying thank you to our network for their continued loyalty, as well as for their help in spreading the word about Harvey John, to friends and former colleagues. So that is why we have decided to launch our first Refer & Reward Scheme -  allowing you to earn up to £500 per candidate referral!

Recruitment across Accountancy & Finance is booming at present and we are seeing employers offer much more flexibility to employees in terms of hybrid and remote working. Everyday we are using our knowledge and expertise to negotiate new roles for accountancy professionals for their preferred working patterns.  In addition, salary offers are higher now than before the pandemic and many firms are extending bonus arrangements to reward hard work.

If you refer a friend or former colleague to us and when we find them a new role, we’ll reward you with up to £500 in cash! There is no limit to the number of candidates you can refer to us.

How it works:

In order to qualify for the Harvey John Refer & Reward Scheme you must provide us with your referral’s name and contact details and have their express permission to pass them on to us.  Alternatively, your friend can contact us directly but they must inform us in their first contact that they have been referred to us by you, by name.

You will be entitled to receive your reward after your referral has successfully completed their first 12 weeks employment with their new employer if it is a permanent placement, or after 200 hours if they are placed in a temporary/interim post.

Your referral must be placed in a role within 24 months of registering with Harvey John to qualify for the scheme.

Sorry but candidates who are currently registered with Harvey John cannot be referred under the scheme for another role.  Only referrals made after 1st August, 2022 qualify for this scheme.

In the event of dispute, Harvey John’s decision is final.  We reserve the right to suspend or discontinue the Reward & Refer Scheme at any time without notice.

You will be responsible for paying any personal income tax that may be due in respect of the receipt of this reward.

The accountancy and finance sector is very competitive, but you're in safe hands.

Like others, we can tell you that we recruit for owner-managed businesses and SMEs to FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 clients. We can also tell you that we hold long lasting relationships with boutique firms to the Big 4. Some of our relationships we share, some of them are exclusive to us. But what stands us apart is our experience in this sector and the service you’ll receive.

Work with Harvey John once, and we're confident you won't need to go anywhere else. There's no 'one and done' mentality in the way we recruit, relationships matter to us and it's why the vast majority of our work is repeat business and successful first time.

So whether you're a Trainee Accountant or Finance Director, or a studier to fully qualified, by choosing Harvey John you'll be working with highly experienced consultants who are solely focused on ensuring your next move is the right one for you and your career.

"As our business has grown and we have added to our team, we have worked with Harvey John to recruit the right people into the right seats, and this means that as well as recruiting individuals with the right technical skill set, they also need to be the type of person that engages and embraces with our culture and values!"
