Do I need to collect references?
References will be requested electronically via Oriel after you have been offered a post. Please contact your referees at the earliest opportunity to check that they will be happy to support your application, and they will be available to do so within the application timeframe.
You will need to provide details, including up to date email addresses, of three referees who have supervised your clinical training within the past three years. If you are applying to more than one specialty, you may opt to nominate different referees for each specialty. If you have recently had a career break and cannot nominate referees from the past three years, then your referees must include your two most recent supervisors.
It is important that you confirm with your referees the email address that they would like you to provide on your application form. Referees will be contacted by email with details of their referee accounts, so it is important that the contact details provided are correct.
If you are offered, and accept a training programme, your employer will not be able to issue a contract without references.
