I'm currently applying for jobs, I've been in paid employment before and have also volunteered within the past few years. My volunteer experience is the most recent. If a future employer asks for references, especially references from my most recent employment, does that include volunteer work or just paid employment? Or can I choose which one to provide references from?

Not unless they ask - they normally choose who they want a reference from.
