You already have the right to work in the UK
Information for UK/Irish citizens who have an ongoing right to work in the UK and those who hold indefinite leave to remain/settled status in the UK.
Documents to evidence an ongoing right to work in the UK are outlined in the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) List A (below).
From 1 July 2021 if you are an EEA/Swiss citizen who was resident in the UK before 31 December 2020 and have been granted a status under the EU Settlement Scheme, you will need to use this to evidence your right to work in the UK. You do this by accessing the UK Government website to provide a code to share your data. The University uses this to confirm your right to work. When you inform your School/Department that you wish to do the on-line check, you will be given a University e-mail address to forward the code to.
If you have been granted ‘Settled Status’ by the Home Office, you will have continuous right to work. If you have been granted ‘Pre-Settled Status’, you will have a time-limited right to work.
If you have indefinite leave to remain
Please note UKVI rules prevent the University from accepting a visa/indefinite leave to remain vignette (i.e. sticker) that is in an expired passport. You will need to apply to UKVI to have the same visa issued as a separate biometric residence permit (BRP). This will then enable the University to employ you.
The application form to transfer your indefinite leave to remain to a BRP can be found at:
