Cygnet Employee Referral Scheme – SLT, OT & Psychology only

Terms and Conditions

This scheme replaces any current referral schemes in place. 

As a current employee you are the best ambassador for our organisation. We are looking to you to support our recruitment process by recommending your friends as future Cygnet Health Care Employees. 

Employee referral schemes are increasingly popular because they work for organisations and for new recruits. Nearly half of businesses in the UK are currently investing in them. 

Our Cygnet Employee Referral Scheme is aimed at current employees who would like to recommend a friend, relative or former work colleague to work with us.
