To refer, simply use the "REFER A FRIEND" button on any job listing on this career site to encourage a friend, family member, or former colleague to apply. When applying, your referral will need to list your name on the application.

Participation and Eligibility Guidelines

Many of the new and most promising additions to our team are referred by current employees. The Employee Referral Program was developed to provide an incentive award to a current employee who refers quality candidates that are subsequently hired for designated open positions. Encourage your friends, family members, former colleagues, acquaintances to apply today, and let them know to indicate your name on their online application!


  • In order to receive the referral award, the employee’s name must be entered by the candidate on his/her online application. Referral bonuses are distributed in the employees’ paycheck following 90 days (50%) and 6 months (50%) of employment by the referred employee.
  • Both the employee who made the recommendation and the employee who was hired must be employees of UVM Health Network at the time payouts are disbursed.
  • This program is designed for external hires only and does not apply to internal applicants.

  • An employee at any affiliate within the Network can refer to any other affiliate and be eligible.
