Checklist to follow for obtaining references when hiring.
- Ideally, you should obtain references from current and past employers unless the applicant has not previously been employed, in which case a personal reference should be sought
- Consider who you should make your reference request to, paying particular attention to the type of job for which you are recruiting; you may need to contact a line manager if particular skills are required for the role, otherwise HR may be sufficient.
