Who can participate in the referral programme?

Everyone working for the New Work SE can join the referral programme. Even peoplemanager and HR are now able to refer candidates. However, for directors and the recruiting and active sourcing departments, there will be a rule that only one bonus of up to 3k can be obtained per year. And of course you can not receive a bonus, if your referral is for a position, where you are involved in the hiring process anyway.

When is a referral really a referral? 

As soon as you submit the CV to your career team*. We will check if that person already applied in the past or if we already contacted them via active recruiting – in this case it’s not a referral. Also just sending a profile link doesn’t count.

*You'll be the "candidate owner" for the next six months. If the initial application is unsuccessful, but your referral applies and is hired for another position within six months, the bonus is yours.

When is a referral a lead? 

If you don't contact the candidate yourself, but let the HR team know that the candidate might be of interest to New Work SE, this is in fact a lead which our active recruiting people can follow up on.

The respective recruiter will review the application. Due to the high number of applications we receive and due to data protection, we can’t update you on every step of the process. But we’ll let you know once we've made a final decision.

Sorry, but we can’t count this as a referral.

Sorry, it’s too late for a referral. Thanks for your commitment, but we can’t count it as a referral.

Yes. If the original application is longer than 6 months ago, just give it another go. People develop and maybe we just didn’t have the right position before. Please do however point out in your referral that the person already applied some time ago.

First come, first serve. Unfortunately, we can’t count this a referral.

Again: First come, first serve. The first person to submit the candidate’s CV (inbox date counts) will get the referral bonus if the person is hired.

Yes. If we hire a candidate for another position, you will still receive a referral bonus.

🇩🇪 🇦🇹
Bonuses will be paid out at the end of the month in which your referral starts at New Work SE. This will take place automatically and you don’t need to take any action for this to happen.

🇪🇸 🇵🇹 
Half of the bonus will be paid at the end of the month in which your referral starts, the other half after the internal probation period.

Yes, you're entitled to receive a bonus.

Sorry, after leaving the company, you are no longer entitled to receive the referral bonus.

Yes, after you left the company, you’re becoming an alumni and will receive an alumni bonus (€2,000).

Sorry, you are not entitled to receive the referral bonus.

When referring someone to New Work, you “own” them for 6 months after we end the process. The official end of the process is when we send out a rejection. After these 6 months have passed, you lose your “ownership” and would need to refer the candidate again in order to be eligible for a referral bonus.

The bonus is paid by the cost center the referral was made from.
