I'm really sorry if this is the wrong sector to post in, but basically i've been offered a job in Accountancy, however - i'm having problems with the reference form. I don't understand it!!! Right after you fill in the reference details it asks "please obtain permission to contact this referee" with a yes or no reply tick box..
Could someone please help me with what this means and what box i should tick? Thanks alot!

They want you to ask the person that provided the reference if they can contact them. If you tick yes it basically means your referee is expecting the employer to contact him/her.
Judging by the wording, it is the opposite. They should tick no if the employer is expecting the request and yes if they wish to be informed before the request is made.
I most definitely answered this question yesterday, OP have you made two threads?
