Referee reports

Candidates will need to ensure that 2 referee reports are attached to their online application prior to their specific Recruitment Round. It is the candidate's responsibility to ensure the timely return of referee reports.


Obtain approval from your referee before you complete the referee's section on your RMO Campaign online application.

  • 1 referee should be your current immediate supervisor (someone who can report on your clinical capabilities)
  • the second nominated referee should be able to comment on your general character and performance as an employee (e.g. current Consultant, Staff Specialist, Clinical Director, Director Medical Services, Director of Training, Medical Superintendent or a partner in a private practice).
  • Specialty training programs may require additional referee reports, please refer to your Specialty training program webpage. Some specialty training positions require specific referees to be nominated.

Complete Step 11: Referees section on your online application by entering your two referees contact details.

It is recommended that professional (rather than private) email addresses are used for referees.


Once you complete Step 11: Referees section and press ‘Save and Continue’ at the bottom of the page, an automatic email notification will be sent to your referees to complete and submit their reference.

Late submissions are accepted, but may hinder the recruitment process, please check when your referee reports are due.


Confirm receipt of reference email with your referees.

If they don't receive the notification:

  • check you have entered their email address correctly on your online application
  • ask your referee to check their email junk folder
  • email if the referee still does not receive the notification

Referees need to complete and submit references via the secure link provided within the email. Once a reference is submitted, the referee will receive an email confirmation with a copy of the reference attached.

If your referee does not receive the confirmation email, the report has not been submitted successfully. Please ask your referee to make sure that they receive the confirmation email prior to closing the reference link as they may need to re-submit the link again.

6 Once a reference is attached to your online application successfully, you will also receive a confirmation email advising which referee has submitted the report.
