Practical help for referees

3rd October 2013

Help is at last on hand for everyone asked to write a job reference for a friend or colleague. The latest Training Notes on this website, published today, give detailed, practical advice on this tricky task.

The notes are written by someone well used to reading job references for either short-listing or the formal interviewing of candidates for posts in churches and mission agencies.

Some references offer little of real help to the team having to decide on the appointment, but a well-written reference can be valuable, even in a day when some people are saying that references are virtually worthless.

The advice can be found at Training Notes TN76 in the Resources section of this website.
