Consultant Referrals

    How can I see the open job opportunities?

  • All of the open job opportunities are posted on our LinkedIn job board here.
  • How much do I get paid for referring a consultant?

  • Referrers receive $2/hr referral bonus for each consultant they help us deploy over the life of the contract of the person they referred ($500/full time employee).
  • How long do I get paid?

  • For the entire duration of the referral’s contract (including their extensions).
  • When I refer someone who is a full time start; when do I get paid?

  • Once the referred employee clears their probationary period (typically at 3 months, sometimes at 6 months depending on the client), you will be paid out $500 for a successful employee referral.
  • Am I guaranteed to make $4,000?

  • The $4,000 figure is based on a referral payment of $2/hr over a 40 hour work week over the course of 50 weeks (approximately 1 year).
  • Contracts may run longer, or shorter than 1 year; so total referral payment may be more than $4,000 (if more than 2,000 hours are worked) or less than $4,000 (if less than 2,000 hours are worked on a contract).
  • Affinity’s average contract length is just over 1 year.
  • What if I refer someone but they don’t get the job I referred them to?

  • Referral fees are paid out when:
    • You refer a candidate that is known to us to a job where we had not already connected the candidate to the job.
    • You refer a new consultant to us and we place them with a client (when placed within 6 months of you referring them).
  • How many people can I refer?

  • The more the better, there is no limit.
  • How do I know if I’m referring someone new to you, or if it is someone you already know?

  • If you input someone in our system and the person is already known to us, we’ll follow up with you and let you know.

Client Referrals

    What if introduce you to a new client?

  • If we successfully place a consultant with a new client as a result of you introducing us to that client, we will pay you $2/hr over the life of the first contract placement with that (and $500 for the first full time employee placement).
  • What if I introduce you to a client that you have worked with, but it's been a very long time since you worked with them?

  • If you refer us to a ‘dormant’ client (we haven’t worked with them in 2 years), we will pay you $2/hr over the life of the first contract placement with that client (and $500 for the first full time employee placement).
  • What if I refer a new client and the successful consultant that fills the role, can I get both the client and the consultant referral?

  • Yes, you would be entitled to $2/hr + $2/hr for the duration of the contract for the first placement at the new (or dormant) client.
  • How do I know if I’m referring a new (or dormant) client to you, or if it is a client you already know?

  • If you send us a client referral and we are already working with the client, we’ll follow up with you and let you know.

Payment Details

    How do I get paid?

  • Referrers on Affinity payroll will receive payment via their regular pay cheques. The referral amounts will be added to their employment income (quarterly).
  • Referrers not on Affinity payroll will receive payment via direct deposit after submitting an invoice to us (we will provide an invoicing template).
  • How often do I get paid?

  • Referrers will be paid out every calendar quarter. We will total the number of hours worked by the referred consultant and pay out the referrers accordingly.

    Are there any restrictions to who I can refer?

  • In order to avoid any conflicts of interest, if you are the hiring manager/decision maker for a given role and you refer us someone for that role, we will not pay out a referral for said referral. For example, if you were going to utilize our payroll services for a consultant, and ‘referred’ us a consultant to payroll into your organization, this would not generate a referral bonus.
