Referee reports

Referee reports are an assessment method where supervisors or other people with direct personal knowledge of an applicant's skills, knowledge and/or experience are asked to provide information on their performance against the selection criteria of the advertised vacancy.

Referees can also be asked to verify or comment on claims made by the applicant in the application or interview.

Referee reports can be obtained either before or after the interview process and can be provided either orally or in writing.
