Can anyone tell me if they have had trouble obtaining the reference letters for previous employment along with employment contracts?

I have had numerous employers in the last 10 years, 2 of which have since been bought out and although I am contacting them all for reference letters I am not sure if I will get them. Also I only have employment contracts for my current and 2 of my previous employers and I am sure copies will be impossible to get hold of.

If do have any advice or experience of how strict they are about this paperwork then I would really like to hear it.

Many thanks

Hi there,

If you can't get references or copies of your contract then don't panic, you can use payslips, P60's or NI records instead. The more you can get the better though obviously.

Hope that helps.
