It’s people not technology, that makes our world go round – do your bit and get referring

Posted on | Posted in News

As mentioned in our previous blog, there is currently a widespread candidate shortage and we need your help to match the right people to the right jobs.

What has a candidate shortage got to do with me?

Worker shortages will affect everyone at a personal, local and national level. The pandemic and people self-isolating proved that if there isn’t the human resource to fill the supermarket shelves, stock the chemists, make components for electrical equipment, work in pubs, coordinate events and performances, and expediently deliver packages from online shopping, life can come to a grinding halt. Despite all the technology around us, it’s people that truly make the world go round.

What can I do about it?

You can do your bit and earn yourself a nice little shopping voucher bonus via the ‘Wote Street Referral Scheme’, simply by referring as many people as you like. You don’t have be registered with us and you will receive a referral kickback for every successful placement – whether that’s a temp or permanent job.

What’s in it for me?

Not only do you get the good-feeling glow from helping a friend, when the candidate you refer completes 24 hours of temp work you will receive a £25 shopping voucher of your choice, perfect to treat yourself.

And if they take a permanent role via Wote Street People, you receive a generous £50 shopping voucher of your choice and so do they. You could have a fun day out together to celebrate their success.

If you know anyone who is looking for employment –  be it a friend, family member or previous work colleague, who can work in the Basingstoke and surrounding areas, then get in touch today!

Call Maxine Hart on 01256 236 007 or email Maxine@wotestreetpeople for a friendly chat about the scheme and how to refer a candidate.
