Morning boys and girls
My application has changed to "under review we will contact you soon"

However I am a little concerned as my referee has not been contacted yet.

I am unable to see the track my application tab now so can't check to see if this is normal?

Thanks for your help

not all referees are contact, people have passed vetting without counter signatory being contacted and for pre employer refs they mostly now go through HMRC, and only contact past employers if HMRC records do not match your own, if they find no reason to contact referees then they won't do.

Good luck, hope you get good news

None of my references have been contacted and i'm due to start at my establishment on the 12.02. I received my employee number today as well, so i wouldn't worry to much, like LauCham said i think they go through HMRC now to check and if it doesn't match then they contact your references.
