First job and I've been asked to provide an address, email and phone number for my two references (teacher and manager from volunteering). I have a email and number for the manager but not an address because he no longer works there. Which method are they most likely to use? And is an address absolutely necessary?

They're most likely to just give them a call, but if they asked specifically for an address, you should probably give them one

They will use the address as a last resort. But remember to contact your referees and ask if they want to be put forward, otherwise you will lose your job before it even started.

I would say the most common method is to sent a standard form to the referee. However telephone calls are possible. I would say that a phone number and email address should be alright. You could ask the employer or contact the referee to ask for the address. It is always good practice to get agreement from your referees before you provide their details anyway
