This is where you add the essential information about yourself such as name and contact details, most recent job and reference. All communication through myjobscotland is by email, so please ensure you include a current email address that only you have access to.
Make sure your referees are willing to provide a reference before adding their names to your application – they will only be contacted if you reach the preferred candidate stage as part of the pre-employment checks.
Your reference is usually your most recent employer/line manager. If you don’t have a recent employer that can provide a reference, you could include the name of someone who knows you well and could speak to your ability to undertake the requirements of the role. For example, a teacher or a leader of a club or group you attend.
