    At the start of this questionnaire it says if you get to interview you are expected to bring a copy of your references... but what if I can't get a reference from everyone? does this mean I cant include this placement as my work experience or not??

    They only want references from some of your most recent placements, I wouldn't worry if you haven't got references from all, just make sure you have a nice selection of references

    I'm slightly worried about this too, as my most recent farm placement was lambing and I'm really struggling to get a reference - they've said they'll do it and I've reminded them about 3 times so far but still nothing

    Best way to deal with that is go to the farm when it's not lambing time and pay them a visit and get them to hand write you a quick reference. They're less likely to forget if you're stood in front of them and tell them the importance of having a brief reference

    I had a similar problem with a stables when chasing references. They told me at the time of the placement just email them and they will be more than happy to write me one however when I did there was no response. I phoned them up a couple of times and the woman in charge was always out but I was told as soon as she came back she would phone me and sort it out... never happened. So I just physically went to the stables and asked for one and within 10 minutes it was done. As said above if you are actually there asking for a reference it is difficult to pass it off and avoid doing one.
