Right to work changes

From the 1st July 2021, right to work checks for European Economic Area and Swiss nationals working in the UK are changing. 

There are no changes to proof of right to work for candidates for British citizens (the UK, Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey), Irish citizens or those from countries outside of the EEU and Switzerland.

What’s changing?

From 1 July 2021, EEA citizens and their family members require immigration status in the UK. EEA passport or national identity card can no longer be provided as proof of the right to work in the UK.

The EEA countries are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

Most EEA citizens living in the UK will have made an application to the EU Settlement Scheme and will have been provided with digital evidence of their UK immigration status. They should evidence their right to work by sharing their immigration status digitally with their employer, using the Home Office online right to work service on GOV.UK

There will however be other EEA citizens who have another form of leave in the UK, which is held in a physical document, for example, an endorsement in a passport, visa or sticker (vignette).

What you need to do

To work in the Partnership, you will be required to prove your right to work in the UK. Therefore, please bring to your interview the appropriate documents which prove your right to work in the UK. For a list of acceptable documents please follow this link.

If you hold an online account where your immigration documents are stored digitally, the easiest way to prove your right to work in the UK is by creating a share code to bring to your interview.  Details of how to do this can be found here.
