This question already has an answer here:
Today I went in to sign my contract and all related documents for my first job (I'm 16 in the UK). There was a section that had spaces for two references from previous employers however as this is going to be my first job, I didn't have anything to put in there. I did put details of my ongoing volunteering at a charity shop however I put the other space blank and noted that I haven't been in employment previously.
I passed the store manager my signed "starter pack" with all my information including the reference page and she checked through it and allowed me to go home telling me that I'd be contacted with my shift information shortly (She didn't mention anything about the blank reference space). However I am now worried because all of those documents are going to be sent to the HR department at main office (it's a clothing store with many branches across the country) and on my contract it said the offer for the job is subject to obtaining two satisfactory references.
Is it possible that my job offer/contract would be nullified once it reaches HR? Would it be possible to get another reference after starting the job?
I left it blank purely because it specified references from previous employment which I don't have and to reiterate the store manager didn't mention anything about it when she looked and what I put down.
