Buzzworks launches cash referral scheme to attract new talent

Buzzworks Thirty Knots in South Queensferry

LEADING hospitality operator, Buzzworks Holdings, has introduced a new, cash incentive employee bonus scheme for any members of the public who refer a friend to join its soon to open Thirty Knots pub and restaurant in South Queensferry.

Designed to unearth new talent and bolster company culture, Buzzworks’ handsome initiative could see the referrer walking away with up to £750 for a successful recommendation.

Nicola Watt, Head of People at Buzzworks Holdings, said: “We are delighted to open our refer a friend scheme for a limited time only. We believe this will provide a great incentive for attracting new team members and showcasing the development that’s possible when working at Buzzworks. 

“With our growing portfolio of East Coast hospitality venues, we are committed to investing in new recruits and believe in remunerating those who have taken the time to share their recommendations with us.”

Following the opening of Scott’s Port Edgar and The Bridge Inn, Linlithgow, Buzzworks acquired local hospitality business Herringbone, adding to their portfolio two more unique venues in Edinburgh Goldenacre and on the beautiful coast of North Berwick.

Recently named in The Best Companies to Work For list in the UK, Buzzworks has become known for its industry-leading staff benefits, including competitive rates of pay, ongoing training and development, career progression, flexible working, and health and wellbeing incentives.

Alongside the soon-to-open Thirty Knots, the award-winning company offers an aspirational dining and entertainment experience through its other stylish brands – Scotts, House, Lido, Vic’s & The Vine, The Duke, The Bridge Inn, The Fox, and Herringbone. 

Nicola continued: “Employee referrals are a successful part of our recruitment process and we look forward to hearing from our employees, loyal customers and people in the community on who they advocate for a role at Buzzworks.”
