We have a legal responsibility to ensure that only individuals who are entitled to live and work in the UK are employed by Scripture Union.
In all cases, before you commence work, we are required to confirm your eligibility to work by checking original documents as per the eligible documents lists. We reserve the right to undertake any checks that may be necessary to verify the information that you provide to us.
All offers of employment are made subject to verification of eligibility to work in the UK.
Who is automatically entitled to live work in the UK?
There are a number of ways in which individuals may already be eligible to live and work in the UK. Some of the main categories are:
These categories are subject to change from time to time, particularly as new countries join the EEA. You are therefore advised to check your own eligibility with the Home Office via the UK Boarders Agency http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/. Comprehensive and up to date information can be obtained via their web pages.
Please have a look at pages 20 onwards for guidance on docmentary evidence for proof of the right to work in the UK UK Boarder Agency - Prevention of Illegal Working
List A - documents which provide ongoing evidence
You have an ongoing right to work in the UK and are therefore not subject to immigration control (eg European Economic Area (EEA)/Swiss nationals). If you are in this category Scripture Union needs to check your documents once only, before you commence employment.
List B - Documents which provide evidence for up to 12 months
You do not have automatic eligibility to live and work in the UK, but you have, or expect to be granted, approval to take employment in the UK for a limited period (eg work permit/certificate of sponsorship holders and their family members). If you are in this category Scripture Union needs to check your documents before you commence employment, and then at least every 12 months during the duration of your employment, to ensure that your eligibility remains valid.
