Reference Checks


Completing a well constructed reference check is an art, and when done properly, it will uncover all of the strengths and weaknesses of an applicant so you can make an informed decision.

If this is an area you do not have training or experience in, utilising our reference check services can ensure you are finding out all there is to know before making an offer to an applicant. Not only do you get a full report on the conversation, but we also record all references so you can listen to the refereeā€™s comments direct from their mouth if you wish!

Completed by experienced recruitment professionals, we will write an honest appraisal of the referee including if we felt it was a genuine reference or not. We will highlight areas of possible concern, comments to be aware of, and our recommendation on if the reference was conclusive, or if we feel another reference should be completed.

In addition, we take steps to ensure the legitimacy of the referee including confirming their role and position prior to finalising our comments
What is asked during a reference check?
Reference Check
We are able to customise a reference to cover any specific areas you need, however as a standard, our questioning includes confirmation of their role and dates of employment. Key responsibilities and duties in the role. Strengths, weaknesses and overall ability and performance. Reason for leaving and likelihood of being re-employed in a hypothetical situation. Areas for concerns. Attendance, punctuality, ability to be managed and tips for future managers. We allow the interview to flow, which ensures we can delve further into any area as needed.
