We ask all new starters to provide evidence of your right to work in the UK.

What documents do I need?

For most people, their passport will be the easiest way to confirm your right to work.

EU, EEA or Swiss nationals
Bring your passport or national identity card. It doesn't matter if your document has expired as long as we can identify you from it.
Non-EU nationals
Bring your current passport, plus your current Biometric Residence Permit. If you don't have a Biometric Residence Permit, your passport should contain a visa confirming that you have permission to work in the UK.

If you have changed your name since your passport or ID card was issued, bring documentation (eg a marriage or divorce certificate) to support this.

What if I don't have a passport?

There are other documents you can use to show your permission to work.

All your documents must be original. We cannot accept copies.

Where should I bring my documents?

Bring your documents to Human Resources in Heslington Hall before you start work.

We are open from 8.30am until 5pm, Monday to Friday. You don't need to make an appointment.

We will inspect and make a copy of your documents while you wait.

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.

I'm not sure I currently have the right to work in the UK
