There are certain things that you must do and that we need to check before you start your new job.

Right to work in the UK

You must bring documents showing your right to work in the UK before you start work at the University.

Bring your documents to Human Resources in Heslington Hall. We are open from 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. We will make copies of your documents and return them to you immediately. When you come in, collect your complimentary vouchers for a hot drink on campus and a visit to the Sports Village.

We need to see you and your documents together. It's not possible to send your documents in or have someone else bring them in for you.

If you don’t have permission to work in the UK, then you will need to get permission to work under Tier 1 or Tier 2 of the UK visa and immigration system. There are details in your letter of appointment.

Other employment checks

We need satisfactory references to confirm your appointment. If we haven't already done so, we will now contact your referees.

Your appointment may also be subject to other conditions - please check your appointment letter for details.

Start date

Your appointment letter will normally mention your start date, including the time and where to come on your first day. If your start date isn’t confirmed, or if you’ve asked for a different date, we will contact you as soon as possible to arrange this.
