Now then, references for jobs when I get to Oz.

I've worked on contract for the last 15 years here in blighty, my longest contract being 3 years, shortest 2 days (that one's not on my CV strangely enough!).
I don't have any references/referees on my CV here cos my extensive work experience added to being "known" to other draughtsman in the NW and known by the agents means I don't need em.

Would it be correct to say that I will need references from previous employers when I get to OZ? Can I re-use the ones I got for my skills application?

Do they also insist on them for casual jobs?

Any info much appreciated.

Well, just from my own personal experience again. But yes, they do require them, and even worse, they DO ring them.

I'm sure there'll be lots of people saying how they walked into a job with no references and no checks. But from what I've seen and experienced, references are a must.
