For all posts requiring a DBS check, it is Hull Culture & Leisure's policy that two references are requested for the preferred candidate after interview. For all posts that do not require a DBS check one reference is requested for the preferred candidate after interview.

If you are unemployed, former employers should be nominated as referees and if you have never been employed, your Head of School or senior teacher may be used. References must be given by someone who is qualified to give such opinions i.e. not personal friends.

Hull Culture & Leisure reserves the right to contact any former employer, or other appropriate person, where it is deemed that some further investigation is reasonably required prior to making an appointment.

It will not be acceptable to nominate members of your family as referees, unless you have been directly employed by the relative and the reference is being given by the relative in his/her capacity as an employer.
