Am currently applying for Officer Training in the Navy, I have my sift interview on the 28th but have become slightly concerned regarding personal referees. Thing is I spent the majority of my life abroad, the last 13 years in Holland, my point is I only moved back to the UK last December, and as such do not really know many people here with 'standing' in the community that would be able to provide what I feel would be an adequate reference. Would anybody be able to provide any information regarding personal referees? I have read that current employers aren't usually the best people to go with as they cannot really say anything except for your employability. If anyone can help that would be great!
