You should speak to the candidate first. If you're speaking to one candidate's referees, but not speaking to the referees of other candidates at the same stage in the process, this could be perceived as that candidate receiving an unfair advantage or disadvantage. It's important that a consistent process is followed for all candidates.

If you have any concerns, contact the Recruitment Team or your Divisional HR Manager or Adviser.
