Answer :

Your referees must be able to assess your suitability for the post.  

One of the nominated referees should be a manager from your current or most recent employment. If you have just completed full-time education, your course tutor, or other academic staff member familiar with your work, could be selected. Family members or personal friends should not be named as referees.

For academic or research positions, the University will contact the referees of all short listed candidates prior to interview if you have given permission.
