In line with the Asylum and Immigration Act 2006 the University has a legal responsibility to ensure that all employees are entitled to live and work in the UK. The application form requires applicants to confirm whether they currently have permission to work in the UK.

The new points based Immigration System took effect from 1st January 2021 in line with the UK’s exit from the EU. The range of roles that the University may be able to obtain a certificate of sponsorship for has changed and if you have short-listed an overseas national for a non-academic role then you are advised to check their eligibility to work status with your HR Employee Services HUB team.
