Reference Checking Job Applicants

Reference checking is an important part of the recruitment process, and knowing what to ask the referee to have your questions answered is an important step too.

Use the telephone reference checking form, along with a comprehensive list of detailed questions to ask referees, to help with your decision making before offering an applicant the role.


There is nothing more important in the interview and recruitment process than the reference check. This is your opportunity to ask a previous employer about specific behaviours or skills you may have discussed with your candidate during the interview.

This reference check guideline covers what questions you may and should ask a previous employer - plus some that you may not ask. We have prepared this guide with the benefit of years of recruitment, reference checking and background checks. We encourage you to take advantage of that experience with this cost effective document that could save you much time and future worry!
