Information for applicants from outside the UK

We recognise the value of diversity within the workplace and we're committed to fostering a culture of inclusion and equality.

But if you're an applicant from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, please be aware that we're bound by legal restrictions that affect our ability to employ non-EEA nationals in the UK.

This legislation requires us to view evidence of the successful candidate's eligibility to work in the UK before confirming any offer of employment.

Currently, we can only apply for work permits to fill the role if:

  • the role is on the shortage occupation list
  • there are no suitable settled candidates
  • there are no candidates of a country in the EEA to fill the role.

In some very specific circumstances, individuals may find they are able to personally apply for a visa that gives them the right to work here.
