So you need a reference?!
Many Explorer Scounts get stuck on a job application form where it says "You need a referee who has known you for at least 3 years and isn't related to you..." or some blurb along those lines! Well...we can help, your Group Scout Leader (Nick) can be used as a referee, provided you have been in the group longer than 3 years and you are an active member of the group.
Please drop the relevent leader an email if you do want to use them as a referee...so we at least know!
It's not just jobs you need a referee for, we are also happy to be names on UCAS forms and anything else!
