A leading HR and compliance consultancy has spoken of the importance of reference and background checks when hiring new staff in the insurance industry.

    My previous employer doesn't give detailed references (beyond confirming that I worked there between such & such dates, no personal or technical commentary) & before that I was self-employed for 10 years in a different industry.

    So, assuming I want to apply for a job but not tell my current employer, I've got no references. I guess I'll never get a job based on this article.

    Hi "Johnny": As a rule we advise employers rather than candidates but if I were in your shoes I'd say there's more than one way to skin a cat. I'm quite sure you will have had positive business relationships with more than your previous employer. When you want to get serious about it, give us a call - perhaps we can offer some suggestions.
