Entitlement to work in the UK

The University has a duty to check that all new employees and workers have the right to work in the UK before an individual starts working. This check gives the University a defence against conviction or a statutory excuse against a civil penalty if we are later found to have employed an illegal worker. This applies to any new employee or worker, whether on salary, wages, fees or any other form of payment and irrespective of the length or duration of the work.

An individual without a right to work check cannot not start work.

Where a prospective employee does not have the right to work in the UK, any offer of employment will be conditional on the receipt of a certificate of sponsorship, where the role is eligible for sponsorship to apply for a visa.
