    Hi, i have an induction coming for Primark for a part time job. They need two referees; one from university and one from my volunteering at BHF. But i have a question regarding my uni referee.

    The lecturer who knows me best, takes the subject which i will drop next year by September after exames in June. Will this affect my job after i have dropped that subject and no longer will have an interaction with her?

    Also,i left BHF when i got the job a few days before becuase i did not have any more time. Is this normal for Primark to get reference from them as i no longer work there?

    I am not from Britain and so do not have the idea for these things. Thanks a LOT those who will read.

    Any teacher/lecturer will be fine, providing obviously you ask them beforehand if they are okay with being your referee and consent to you giving Primark their details It may be that they never even contact your referees, and if they do it's nothing deadly serious just stuff like 'how would you describe your work ethic?'.

    If you've got an induction already though I wouldn't be too worried!

    Dropping the subject wont make a difference and the BHF reference will be fine provided you didn't do anything to piss off the managers.

    Primark only contacted my referees 3 months into the job and haven't needed to speak to them since, though I imagine they might ask again if I apply for a promotion.
