Buzzworks launches chef referral scheme to attract new talent

Leading hospitality operator, Buzzworks Holdings has introduced a new employee bonus scheme for any staff member who refers a friend to join the company.

With a focus on recruiting chefs, Buzzworks are offering a handsome referral scheme which could see the referrer walking away with up to £1,500 if they recommend someone who takes up a full-time, permanent position.

Recently Buzzworks Holdings acquired Herringbone, a Scottish independent hospitality business, in April which added two more unique venues to the portfolio in Edinburgh’s Goldenacre area and another in the beautiful coast of North Berwick.

With further expansion in the near future, Buzzworks is looking to boost its talent pool and grow its teams to ensure they can keep up with customer demand. The business offers lucrative incentives to chefs including competitive rates, ongoing training and development, career progression, flexible working and Health and Wellbeing Incentives.

Nicola Watt, Head of People, said, “With Buzzworks ambitious expansion plans, we are in constant need to match new recruits to our current vacancies in order for the business to really thrive.

“We know how powerful word of mouth can be, so we are looking to our own people and our communities to refer motivated and talented individuals, utilising an impressive bonus pot to reward and thank successful referrals.”

Alongside the Herringbone acquisition, Buzzworks operates a further 14 venues including: Scotts in Troon, Largs and South Queensferry, Vic’s & The Vine in Prestwick, Lido venues in Prestwick and Troon, The Tree House in Ayr, The Long House and The Duke in Kilmarnock, The Mill House in Stewarton, The Corner House in Kilwinning, The Coach House in Bridge of Weir, The Bridge Inn in Linlithgow, and the newest venue, The Fox, Troon.
