» Employee references simplified

 ReferenceExpert is an online referencing service that invites employers and personal referees to provide structured feedback on your candidates. The service is very easy to administer and produces high quality, easy to read reference reports quickly and simply.

The ultimate benefit of ReferenceExpert is all about process. Reducing time, saving money and removing the hassle.

Reference Templates

There are three different reference questionnaires and reports built into the system as standard. We’ll give you access to all three and can use them for any candidate and in any combination. The costs are the same for each version. If our content doesn't fit the bill we can take your reference template and deliver it on our delivery platform.
