Why we’re growing trees
We ‘grow’ trees, because the impact of growing goes far further than just planting. After all, anyone can plant a tree, but not everyone can grow a tree!
For every candidate referral we receive, we have committed to growing one tree with WeForest in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, as a thank you. This is because we know how important it is to restore the forests around our world.
As a corporate sponsor of WeForest, Globe Locums has ensured that our charitable focus is driven by sustainability and environmental awareness.
WeForest is a non-profit association whose focus is on preventing global warming through large-scale reforestation projects in tropical countries. Their work aims for an overall benefit for the environment and for the people who live there.

What impact does planting trees have?
The Atlantic Forest in Brazil used to be 6 times the size of the United Kingdom, but over the course of 20 years, it has lost over 80% of its original forest cover due to agricultural expansion. “No other large tropical forest has suffered this much loss.”
So, what difference can you make? If you look at it this way, it takes 3 trees (or referred friends) to compensate 0.5 tonnes of CO2… that’s the same as a return flight from London to Mallorca. Not a bad trade to cover the carbon footprint for your summer holiday flights!
What counts as a successful referral to grow a tree?
To qualify for growing a tree, the candidate you refer must be unknown to us on our database or referred to us before, and must work within one of our recruitment disciplines. Your referral does NOT have to be placed by us.
What counts as a successful referral to earn the referral bonus?
To qualify for the paid referral bonus, if you introduce a candidate who is not on our database and we are successful in placing them, after they have worked approximately 200 hours we will pay you a minimum of £250. T&Cs Apply.
How do I know if my friend has been successfully referred?
Each month, we contact everyone who has successfully referred a friend and is eligible to have a tree grown on their behalf.
