Right to Work Checks

All UK employers have a statutory duty to prevent illegal working in the UK. Therefore, it is a requirement that all prospective employees provide evidence of their right to work in the UK, before commencing work. Failure to ensure the individual has the correct documents can lead to civil and criminal penalties for non-compliance.

All individuals must present the appropriate original document(s) to a member of the HR Team in person, before taking up employment with us.

Visas and Immigration

The University is a recognised sponsor by the UK Border Agency (UKBA). The Guidance on Sponsorship (PDF, 0.3MB) sets out the requirements in place where the University is seeking to sponsor non-EEA nationals under Tier 2 of the UK's Points Based immigration system.

As a sponsor, the University has various responsibilities which it must comply with and there can be significant penalties for not doing so. As such compliance with the above guidance is mandatory
and any failure to comply will be treated as a serious disciplinary offence.
