Reference Checks

The Resourcing Team will send for the references agreed on the reference section of the applicants application form.

Taking up references can often cause a delay to the Recruitment Process, which is why it is essential that the correct referee information is captured on the application form and at the ID check with the Resourcing Team.

References will always be requested by and returned to the Resourcing Team - a copy of the references will be sent to the Appointing Manager for approval.

The Appointing Manager will discuss with the Resourcing Team if the reference is unsatisfactory. In this instance, the Recruitment Officer will write to inform the applicant that their provisional offer of employment has been withdrawn on that basis.
