Dear Theo With regard to supplying references for a job, I have been asked to put down my previous two employers but MUST also state anyone I have worked for in the past two years where I have had conatct with children. I have been out of work for a while now but have recently started volunteering at brownies. 1) Although I have only been to a few meetings as a helper due to the Christmas break, I'm assuming I should include them as a referee, or maybe not? 2) Also do the brownies count as an employer? In which case I can supply two excellent references from my previous teaching post or do I need to go back and include my previous school employer prior to this where I worked on a maternity cover and the Headteacher has now left, so I have no contact details for him. The maternity cover was prior to the last two years so not sure if this is relevant! Many thanks.
