Eligibility to work in the UK

All employees must be able to demonstrate their right to work in the UK. Details of acceptable documentation to demonstrate eligibility are detailed on the Right to Work Checklist .

Immigration and entry to the UK is managed by UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI), a department of the Home Office.
