All applicants who are offered an interview must provide 2 original referee reports on the Metro North Hospital and Health Service template.  Metro North Hospital and Health Service does not accept referee reports on other templates. To avoid missing out on a position, it is important that you carefully follow these requirements.

You are required to present your signed referee report at the time of your interview. Reports will not be accepted prior to interview. Instructions have been included on page 3 of the Referee Report Template in relation to report submission.

Referee reports which are returned to you via email must be in PDF format and forwarded from the referee’s work email account, not a personal email account. Emails must include the declaration outlined below:

I, have completed this referee report and returned it via email to the nursing/midwifery graduate applicant whose name appears on the top of this referee report. This report includes my signature and is a true and accurate reflection of my knowledge of the applicant. The applicant is requested to bring the referee report and this email to their interview.

You are required to bring the signed referee report and the referee email to your interview.

Only original hand signed (or electronically signed) PDF reports will be accepted.

Referees who do not wish referee reports to be viewed by the applicant prior to review by the selection panel should indicate by ticking the box on page 3 of the report and placing the report in a sealed envelope. Referees are required to sign across the seal of the envelope. The report must still be returned to the applicant. Referee reports returned in sealed envelopes will not be accepted if the seal has been tampered with or broken.

It is your responsibility to provide suitable referee reports at the time of interview. If you are having difficulty contacting your referees and have tried every available avenue, including contacting the School of Nursing/Midwifery at your university for clinical facilitator reports, you will need to contact Nursing and Midwifery Graduate Recruitment at the facility where your interview is scheduled. This is to occur no later than 48 hours prior to your scheduled interview.

Any questions in relation to referee reports or other aspects of the graduate recruitment process should be directed to the Nursing and Midwifery Graduate Recruitment Team. Contact details are included with your interview notification.

Referee reports are valid for 12 months from the date signed by the referee.
