How to request a reference or employment verification
Requests should be sent to EmploymentVerification@gov.im. Please read the below before making your request:
Requesting a reference/employment verification for someone else
Requesting a reference for a past or present Isle of Man Public Service employee/worker will require the written consent of the individual. This consent should be presented with your request for the reference. As part of our Know Your Customer checks, the individual’s date of birth, national insurance number will also be required and if possible their employee number. Requests made that do not have consent and the Know Your Customer checks will not be processed and will be returned with a request for the missing information.
Requesting a reference/employment verification for yourself
If you are requesting an employment verification for yourself, you will need to put your request in writing, including your date of birth, national insurance number and if possible your employee number. Your employee number can be found on your payslips. If you wish for your salary details to be included, for mortgage/rental applications for example, please ensure this is clearly stated in your request.
Once you’ve made your request
References and employment verifications will be issued on an electronic headed PDF document within 15 working days from receipt of request and the relevant Know Your Customer information.
In the interest of data protection, all documents will be sent from the Office of Human Resources password protected. Passwords will be supplied in a separate email or provided over the phone following satisfactory completion of Know Your Customer checks.
