This form is used to confirm what the client “can” do. This is a series of questions regarding things you know of the client’s abilities. They may have occurred in their primary occupation, in their local community groups or otherwise.
You as the referee are only expected to answer what you know to be true. There are more questions here then are generally required. This means that it is ok if you cannot answer every question.
If any questions are poorly expressed, could you please enter the number, for e.g., “Q6 confusing” or “Q10 and Q21 seem the same”.
Remember the point is to collect information from you as simply as possible – please do not feel that there are specific rules as to how this is to be presented.
When answering please start with the calendar year for the event (e.g., 2020) or period range (e.g., 2015 – 2018) so we know how current the experience is.
We understand that your workplace may have official and commercial constraints on information. There is no need to use sensitive wording. For example, if they are regularly leading teams to have a specific piece of equipment maintained and operational then simply use generic terms, for e.g., “fleet capability or fleet management” – you do not need to identify the actual thing.
When discussing teams or work groups – try to give a robust and overall idea of the size of personnel, for e.g., “up to 5 specialists” or “10+ specialists” or “30+ specialists & technicians”.
When discussing the value of their responsibilities and accountabilities – try to be robust to include Assets, Resources and Remunerated Staff as an overall figure, for e.g., “up to $50k, up to $100k, $100k - $250k, up to $500k, up to $1m, $1m+, $10m+ “etc.
Where the question asks for multiple examples, you can simply separate them in the same area, for e.g., “Answer 1 2019” or “Answer 2 2020-2021”.
If an area was already sufficiently covered in a previous response, then refer to it, for e.g., “Refer Question 10 Above” or “Refer Question 6 Above and Question 29 Below”.
If you believe your response is supported by other events then please let us know, such as an award they were presented, then link to this, for e.g., “Reference (or Ref) 2019 Workplace Commendation”.
