Kitsap County's Employee Referral Program

It's no secret that most departments are on the hunt for great talent to fill our many open positions...enter you! As our partner in recruiting, you know our culture, you know our benefits, you 'love where you work', and now it pays to have friends to bring to Kitsap! #EverybodysaRecruiter

Tell me more...
Any employee who refers a successful applicant to a regular budgeted position receives a one-time $250 referral incentive payment for each referral!

The details:
    • The program's effective date is March 14, 2022
    • Bring lots of friends! No limit on the number of people you refer or the number of incentive payments you receive! However, only one referral payment per applicant. 
    • Once the candidate is the successful hire, you get paid!
    • They have to be your friend or a person you know - no paid outreach/recruiting efforts, please and they must have identified you as the person who referred them on their application.
    • Stay with Kitsap! You have to be a current employee in order to receive your incentive payment, plus, we want you to stay.
    • Incentive payments are paid via payroll direct deposit and are subject to payroll taxes.
    • If you are on a hiring panel or part of the hiring decision, you are not able to receive the incentive for that position.
    • Sorry HR staff, you already perform this function, so this program is not for you.
    • If there is already a different referral incentive for a position, this program does not apply (e.g., some Kitsap County Sheriff's Department positions). 
    • If you make a successful referral, follow this job aid to request your one-time payment!
