Is a letter of recommendation accepted as a reference?

I’m applying for a live in housekeeping job. I have a letter of recommendation from my previous housekeeping job which includes the address, name and email. Is this enough to produce as a reference, or would a new employer also require a phone number?


Yes, indeed it is.


Some would some wouldn't...... any reference given is likely to be checked anyway


Yes, ONLY if you have NOT seen or handled it - unless the new employer has got it directly from the employer who wrote it it will be classed as a forgery.


Yes. You should include a phone number.
