What if I don’t want a recruiter to contact a reference without my permission? By Matthew Copp

It’s fair to say that a candidate may not want a prospective employer or a recruiter to contact their employment references without their knowledge and permission. So, what can a job seeker do to help make sure that this doesn’t happen and they can notify their references in time?

My suggestion is either put ‘The contact details of my referees may be made available upon request’.

Or if you want to mention and display those references, then you can always decide to include/not include their contact numbers and put underneath the following text:

‘Please notify me first prior to making contact with any of my referees.’.
