Referral Policy

Our ‘refer a friend’ policy.

What is it?

The PCR Digital Referral Scheme (the “Scheme”) is open and available to anyone who is not employed by PCR Digital (“You”). 

PCR Digital (We) will pay a referral fee to You, if you refer a Candidate to us who We then place in a role. The following document outlines the Terms and Conditions of the Scheme. 

How do you make a referral?

You can make a referral by emailing your Consultant with the contact information of an individual that you believe is suitable for a specific role. If as a direct result, the Candidate is successfully placed in a permanent or temporary role (in any manner including via an umbrella company or limited company) at a PCR Digital client and successfully completes 12 weeks of work, then you will be eligible to receive a gift card for a retailer of your choice (excluding Amazon) or a donation to a charity of your choice.  

You will not be considered to have made a successful referral where the following applies: 

  • The Candidate is based outside of the UK; 
  • The Candidate is already engaged by PCR Digital; 
  • The Candidate is already on the PCR Digital database at the date the referral is made; 
  • PCR Digital have already received the Candidate’s current contact information from another source within 12 months prior to Your referral. 


It is Your obligation to get consent from any Candidate that you may refer to us, prior to submitting their details to Us. You will not have made a referral if You fail to get the consent of any Candidate that You refer to Us. 

If You make a successful referral, You will be eligible to receive a gift card with a pre-loaded cash value, the amount of which will be confirmed by your consultant, depending on the salary or contract rate offered to the placed Candidate. We do not disclose these thresholds to protect confidential Candidate information. 

For the avoidance of doubt, only the first person to refer a specific Candidate (with the referred Candidate’s permission) will be eligible for a Card under this Scheme 

You warrant that any referral You make under this Scheme is genuine, and not dishonest or otherwise fraudulent. 

You will not be entitled to a gift card if You, or the Candidate would breach any restrictions on such activity agreed in a contract with a former employer. It is highly likely that such restrictions will have been agreed with previous employers and employees should check their restrictions closely and take independent legal advice before taking any steps to breach them. We do not condone breaching restrictions agreed with former employers and will not make any payments in such circumstances.  

We may, in our discretion, run any checks required to confirm that a referral is genuine. If for any reason We suspect a referral is fraudulent, We may decide to freeze the amounts made available to You whilst Your referral is fact-checked.
