    Apparently they can go outside your set referees but it's strongly recommended they advise you that they are. It states very cleary that any comments made that could negatively impact on the decision have to be fed back to the applicant for them to respond to. This is what was not done and apparently why I didn't get the job. Had I had that opportunity i could have provided countless examples that disputed those comments. There was unfair weighting placed on that referee.

    The whole process does sound dodgy though, and I'm sure contrary to government recruitment policies.
    Discrimination wasn't really the right word was it. It was more like nepotism really.

    I would write a letter to the relevant people outlining your issues and asking them to explain
