Background check/ references

    Just have a query regarding the reference/background check. I’m applying for a job at one of Dublin’s big tech companies. I understand they use an external background checking service, what is the general obligation to provide as references. As in I would try to keep this new job completely under wraps until I was cast iron in this new role. So the idea of using a manager or senior person is not appealing to me. I definitely have a colleague who I would use but ideally I wouldn’t have to use someone from my current process.

    I understand this is probably a difficult question to answer as lots of places have different processes and regulations. But I’m guessing if anyone can shed any light on what options I may have available to me.
