Lincoln Recruitment, one of Ireland’s leading professional services recruitment firms, has recently launched its exciting Talent Referral Scheme. This scheme is aimed at connecting talented professionals active in sporting clubs and communities across Ireland with exciting career opportunities across various business sectors. Successful referrals of club-mates and/or members will receive cash rewards for them and their club.

Lincoln Recruitment has a proud history of supporting participation in sport, with all the social, personal and health benefits that sport brings to communities. Through this initiative we are looking to give away up to €100,000 in cash rewards to clubs across the country and further afield.

This initiative is being led by Lincoln’s Commercial Director and Dublin GAA star, Paul Flynn, along with ambassadors Cian O’Sullivan (Dublin GAA & Kilmacud Crokes) and Sophie Spence (Leinster & Ireland Rugby).

“We are delighted to have both Cian O’Sullivan and Sophie Spence on board as ambassadors of this scheme. As a nation we are very proud of our sporting heritage and we, at Lincoln Recruitment, strongly believe there are many synergies between sport and business. One being the skills that are developed through sport that can be transferred to your career. Cian and Sophie are two elite athletes who are at the top of their respective sports and are simultaneously developing their careers off the field. We can leverage our connections to help members of your sports club to access high impact career opportunities and expert advice too.”

Under the initiative, people are asked to use their sports club contacts to make introductions between Lincoln Recruitment and professionals who are considering making a career move. If a professional is successfully placed in employment through this scheme, the person who made the introduction will be paid a reward by Lincoln Recruitment of €250 per referral and additionally a donation of €250 will be made to their local sports club of choice.

About Lincoln & Talent Referral Scheme

Lincoln-Logo_Col_RGBLincoln Recruitment Specialists are an industry leader for professional recruitment in the Irish market. We help professionals access high impact careers across a variety of areas and sectors. We also help organisations big and small source, recruit, retain and manage the highly skilled talent they need to succeed and grow in an increasingly competitive world. We’re committed to providing exceptional talent and advice, every time, by thinking differently.



Aims & Objectives

  • Helping club members and supporters take their career to the next level

We launched the Lincoln Talent Referral Scheme with the primary aim of connecting talented professionals active in sporting clubs and communities across Ireland with exciting career opportunities across various business sectors. This new initiative will encourage athletes and communities to support their local clubs by helping club-mates, members and friends get employment in professional services and career advice by referring them to us, and being rewarded for doing so.

  • Supporting local clubs and communities

Lincoln recognises the vital role that clubs play in communities across the country, providing opportunities for people of all ages to learn new skills, socialise and be active. However, fundraising is often an issue, and clubs struggle to raise the necessary cash to support the activities, services and facilities they provide. We aim to harness the support of their members and the local community to generate much needed funds. The Lincoln Talent Referral Scheme is a community promotion, open to clubs of all types and sizes, no matter how big or small, and will see Lincoln donate to clubs across the Ireland and further afield.

  • Bringing the best in Irish talent home to work

Over the years, Ireland’s talent has spread far and wide, to the four corners of the globe. In many cases, Irish people abroad find their ‘home away from home’ in Irish-connected sporting clubs abroad. Our third aim of this initiative is to raise awareness with Irish clubs and communities across the world of Ireland’s extremely positive employment market conditions, and encourage professionals to move home to a wide array of opportunities across multiple industries.

These include Dublin Inter-County GAA stars Cian O’Sullivan of Kilmacud Crokes and Leinster and Ireland rugby star Sophie Spence.
