Referment has become the Official FinTech Recruitment Partner of Brentford Football Club, and will see its logo feature prominently on matchday and digital assets, as well as working closely with the club on activations and content creation.

The link-up will also see Referment getting involved in Community projects, becoming an Official Trust Supporter of Brentford FC Community Sports Trust.

Since launching in 2016, Referment has helped hundreds of FinTech firms source exceptional talent via their referral platform that rewards professionals when they refer the people they know to new career-defining jobs. This provides untapped talent at an unprecedented rate as professionals utilise their network to help their connections find work with some of the industry’s leading companies, earning referral rewards in the process.

Unlike traditional referral schemes, Referment pays referral rewards upon completion of a first-round interview. Community members are rewarded with at least £250 when their referral interviews and the more you refer, the more you earn, with top referrers earning £500 for every successful referral.

In a similar way to Brentford, Referment are using data science to identify candidates that would often be overlooked by other recruitment agencies, utilising graphing technologies and machine learning to map candidates’ careers to date and using historical data to match them to openings with our clients.

James Parkinson, Commercial Director at Brentford FC, said: “Since launching in 2016, Referment have pioneered new methods to identify talent; we’re delighted to partner with a company that has innovation at its heart. We look forward to working with Referment during our debut season in the Premier League.”

Alex Odwell, MD and Founder of Referment, added: “We’re incredibly excited to partner with Brentford and look forward to supporting the Club during their first season in the Premier League. Like Brentford, Referment has invested heavily in data science to improve the effectiveness of its recruitment team. We’ve always admired their data-led recruitment methods and see strong synergies between that and our efforts in using data science to build the world’s most efficient and effective recruitment company.”
