An FOI request asks how many times the £500 payment has been made and how many people have earned more than one payout. From the response it looks as though this payment can be earned in return for recruiting a friend from elsewhere. There is a high turnover in the adjudicator category at FOS and it looks as though they are getting desperate ! Anyway it seems that in the last 2 years, 308 staff have been recruited in this way and 30 staff have done it more than once.
FOS pays £154,000 (£500 a time) to staff who “refer a friend”
