"Hi [Insert referee name]
In order to obtain casual nursing shifts with uPaged, I need to obtain 2 references. Would you please act as one of my referees, for the period [month, year] to [month, year] that I [worked/volunteered/interned] at [insert organisation name].
If so, the form will take less than 2 minutes to complete. There are 4 required sections, completed by selecting a checkbox, confirming my Clinical Ability and Knowledge; General Attitude and Teamwork, Communication Skills, and if you would re-employ me. If you are happy to act as referee, I would be grateful if you could complete the form ASAP because I cannot start work without completed references. The reference form will come from uPaged.
Thank you in advance
[Insert your name]"
