I've noticed the HMRC asks for two personal referees and one academic/employer referee. I'd not be too happy for them to contact my current employer as I am still working for them. I am just wondering what happens if I select NO to the question "I consent to my academic / employer referee being contacted"? Can anyone advise? Thank you!

It's normal to not want to notify your existing employer that you are looking for another job. Thus if you tick 'no' that would be perfectly acceptable.

I wouldn’t tick no, it could affect your application.

OP, I work in HMRC. They’ll only contact your references once they provide you with a provisional offer, so you’ve more or less got the job.

I’d tick yes. When you get that provisional offer (trust me it won’t happen in a hurry), then think about having a conversation with your current employer.

Although keep in mind it took me 6 months from when I got my provisional offer to have my formal offer. And this is the norm...

What about providing one of my previous employers?

"My employer referee" means the current employer? Could my referee be one of my previous employers?

Yes a previous employer would actually be better

HMRC has just completed the pre-employment checks. Do you know how long it takes to be contacted to agree on a start date? I've a month notice to give to my current employer. Do you know if it's possible to postpone the start date? I've pre-booked holidays as well.

Thank you.
