Information for applicants with disabilities
Our central London offices offer good access for those with a disability and we are committed to supporting disabled applicants and members of staff.
We're committed to doing as much as we can to support applicants who have disabilities. Please contact Sonia Matthew on +44 (0)20 7611 8821 or Tracey Wickham on +44 (0)20 7611 8593 to let us know of any adjustments we can make to help you during the application process.
Information for applicants from outside the UK
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 a vacancy if:
- the role is on the shortage occupation list
- there are no suitable settled candidates
- there are no candidates from 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.
If you're a non-EEA national without the right to work in the UK and are considering applying for a role at Wellcome, please find out if you will be able to work in the UK.
