Referrer FAQ’S

How can I refer friends and get credit for my referrals?

When you register for the program at hays.com.au/refer-a-friend or hays.net.nz/refer-a-friend you will receive a unique URL which you share with your friends to refer them. Your friend then clicks on your unique url and is taken to a landing page where they register their details with Hays, and from there, go on to apply for a role or upload their CV with Hays. If they are successfully placed into a role and meet the eligibility criteria outlined in the Ts & Cs then you will receive a $200 e-gift card by email from Hays.


How do I access my unique share url?

You will have received a welcome email where you can access your unique share link. If misplaced and you are already registered, visit the registration page hays.com.au/refer-a-friend or hays.net.nz/refer-a-friend and click on Already registered? Access your unique link here. It then takes you to the login page where you can select ‘forgotten password’ and an email will be triggered to your registered email address to allow you to reset your password and access your dashboard.


Do I need to login to refer?

No, you just need to go back to your dashboard though the link in your welcome email and you can refer from there using your unique link.


What happens if I forget my username?

Your username is the email address you provided when you registered. 


When will I be notified if the person I referred gets a job?

You will only be notified and sent your $200 e-gift card once the person you referred has been placed into a role and meets the eligibility criteria outlined in the Terms & Conditions. Unfortunately we cannot provide progress updates of your friend’s job search.


What is the eligibility criteria for receiving the $200 e-gift card?

If your friend is successfully placed in a role within 12 months and for permanent placements, they are placed in a role for minimum 1 month and for temporary or contract placements, that a minimum of 40 hours is completed within the first 4 weeks of placement. Vouchers are issued to the Referrer’s email if and when conditions are met.


How do I refer again?

A Referrer can visit their dashboard page through the unique link in their welcome email to refer again at any time. You can also visit the registration page hays.com.au/refer-a-friend or hays.net.nz/refer-a-friend and click on Already registered? Access your unique link here. It then takes you to the login page where you can select ‘forgotten password’ and an email will be triggered to your registered email address to allow you to reset your password to access your unique share link.
