The University has a legal
responsibility to ensure that all employees are entitled to live
and work in the UK. Citizens of countries other than the UK,
Switzerland and those in the European Economic Area (EEA) will be
required to have a valid work permit and visa in order to reside
and work in the UK.
For some vacancies (those requiring specific skills or in
shortage occupations) we may be able to obtain a certificate of
sponsorship for a suitably qualified applicant as part of the
process of obtaining permission to work in the UK from the UK
Border Agency (UKBA).
However, for most other vacancies it may be unlikely that
permission to work in the UK would be granted. You can check
whether you would be eligible to work in the UK at the
UK Border Agency.
Frequently asked questions about the
system and application procedures can be found on our
Frequently Asked Questions page.
