Just to let you know... If you are an existing user before 18th September, you may notice the model documents have changed. This is to coincide with our website relaunch: we wanted to refresh the content too. Don't worry, these are not legally required changes so you can continue to use the previous version you have saved or downloaded. (We have kept the previous date as well to make it easy to reference.)
This form can be used to seek consent from the candidate, where consent is to be used as the lawful basis under data protection laws, to your seeking references in relation to their application.
This example job application form includes sections on personal information, qualifications, current and previous employment, as well as space for the details of referees. It also contains an updated data protection statement, referring to the privacy notice. Where consent is used to seek references, you may wish to send the 'Form to gain consent from candidate to seek references' to obtain consent.
