How does online reference checking work?

With Xref, candidates are able to manage and monitor the progress of their references, and referees are given the freedom to complete their feedback as and when it suits them.

Here’s how the automated reference checking process works.


Employer sends a reference request to the candidate via the Xref platform.


Referee provides feedback online via a mobile-friendly questionnaire.


Once complete, the candidate is notified and a report is generated for the employer.
