​Selecting and providing referees

As a part of your application you are expected to provide Western NSW Local Health District with at least two work related referees. Please include their names, current phone numbers, email addresses if known and their professional job titles where required. Our selection panel will need to contact them as part of the selection process.  

Your referees should be able to provide a professional reference with regards to your skills, qualifications and abilities in relation to the job you applied for. It is important that you choose your referees carefully, depending on their expertise and their willingness to recommend you for the job you are applying for. 

It is preferred that at least one of these people should be a recent work supervisor who can comment directly on your work performance. It is equally important that your referees know ahead of time that you are applying for the job. You may wish to consider providing them with a copy of the position description so that they are prepared to provide relevant information to the selection committee when asked.   ​

Written referee reports are not required.​
