#1  CRC check and References  Posted 08/05/2014 at 19:19
hi guys, i am due to start my training (mixed fleet LHR ) 27th June , however i am still waiting for ba to contact me in regards to how i apply for the criminal record check. My acceptance email states all references etc must be completed 2 weeks prior to start date, which leaves 5 weeks to get sorted, Im worried that my start date will be pushed back. Has anyone else experienced similar scenario.

Thanks,

Don't worry, I start training 11th June and only got the referencing email about a week and half ago. Once you get that you get that email everything starts moving!xx

Hi,

As long as your 5 year history is straight forward (no jobs abroad, no gaps in employment, no periods of claiming benefits) then it should all get done in time. If there are complications such as the ones I listed it can take quite a while. My start date got moved back six weeks due to Procius not being able to get my referencing sorted on time, and BA told me two days before I was due to start training. My advice is just to keep well on top of it and make sure it's all done in plenty of time.

Jenny

I'm just filling in my references for an AD. I have a six week gap between finishing school and starting work, not claiming benefits. I guess I need a personal referee, but who can be one, as it doesn't say anything about that on the guide? Surely a family member can't be one? The thing is, I'm sort of running out of personal referees, as the school I went to has gone bust and I need one for that period too. Any ideas?

How about a family friend, a neighbour,a teacher, a priest. your doctor, etc

Hi there ,

it cannot be someone such as a doctor etc..... i have a 2 year gap between employers. i have given a personal reference who is a friend , your reference cannot be related to you. the friend that you select to be a reference, you must have known them for more than 5 years.

hope this helps

Thanks prism and N1986!
That's pretty much what I thought. I hate to bother my friends with this, but guess I have to. They normally use e-mail though, don't they? I was just thinking a phone call from abroad might feel a bit intimidating to some people…

Hi,

Has anyone else lived abroad in the past 5years and need to get a CRB certificate from the relevant country?

I'm having a right nightmare!

I'm having a nightmare with referencing! I was at school, sixth form and college for the majority of the period that is needed, then I moved to a bigger company. All these have managed to give good references, however I put down that I had a weekend cash in hand job and that employer, for some silly reason which I am still to find out, wouldn't return the reference. I spoke with BackCheck and they said it has to be done because I've put it down. Managed to get hold of the employer and he says as he is legally only really required to confirm the dates I was with the company, this is all he will do, but I can also get a personal reference from a supervisor I was working with at the time. My ex-boss said that he will confirm the dates I was with them direct from his business email address - Will this be okay?!! Can't contact BA or Back Check until Tuesday... Silly bank holiday! And just wanted to know if anyone might know?? Thank you in advance!!
