Referral Scheme

Share this page

We’ve been helping people find jobs in the construction industry since 1990. And we’re proud to say we’ve become so good at it that construction professionals recommend us to their friends and colleagues.

That’s a big favour, and we thought it was about time we returned it. So we started to pay everyone who referred us £200 when we found the person they referred the job they wanted. That was in 2014, and we’ve paid out over £23,000 in referral fees since.

Yes, this legal stuff is a bit dull, but it’s worth reading:

To qualify for the referral bonus, all of the below criteria must be met (T&C's):

  • The referrer must already be a registered job seeker or employer contact of Contract Scotland.
  • The referrer must have the permission of the person they are referring before the referral.
  • Should you refer a job seeker to Contract Scotland that we then place in a temporary or permanent position within 12 months of the referral, Contract Scotland will pay the referring person a fee of £200.
  • The person being referred must not have worked for, have registered as a job seeker, or re-registered with Contract Scotland within the previous five years.
  • The fee will be payable to the referrer once the job seeker has completed 30 days in their new position. If a temporary contract lasts less than 30 days, the fee will be paid once the job seeker has worked a cumulative 30 days over numerous contracts.
  • There is no limit to the number of referrals a referrer can make.
  • This scheme is not open to employees of Contract Scotland Ltd or their relatives.


  • Tax is due to be paid on the referral bonus and will be the responsibility of the individual it is paid to.
  • This scheme does not apply to shadow job placements arranged through our Social Enterprise.
  • In the event of a dispute, Contract Scotland's Directors decision will be final.
  • Contract Scotland reserves the right to amend or withdraw the scheme at any point and without prior notice.
