What is a character reference?

A Character Reference (or Personal Reference) is designed to provide insight into the candidate's character and abilities - usually outside of a work context. Rather than comment on a candidate's role experience or tenure as an employer might - a Character Reference is focused on providing a testament to their personality, behaviours, and how these individual skills may suit the open role in question.

Structured to give insight on a personal level, RECREF Character References go beyond what's on a CV or Employment References (which are often just basic validation of tenure and performance in a role), so you can consider the individual 'human' differences in candidates during the recruitment process.
