Changes to Right to Work Checks

From October 1st 2022, the way we are required to conduct right to work checks has changed. The changes are as a result of the government’s removal covid-related concession where employers, like us, were allowed to do checks on right to work documents remotely via a video call without seeing our original documents.

Below, we’ve detailed the new changes and how this may affect you when registering or re-registering with us.

What does this mean for you?

This will depend on the type of right to work document you have. You can find out more below:

In-date British passport 

You can verify your right to work in the UK using an app called Credas. You’ll be asked to do this prior to your interview. 

Out-of-date British passport or birth certificate 

You’ll need to come in and see us in person so we can verify the document. To do this you may arrange to visit our office or your consultant or a member of our resourcing team maybe able to meet you locally.

EU Settlement Status/BRP

You can verify your eligibility by providing one of the following documents:

  • Proof of EU settlement status and your unique share code
  • Biometric Residence Permit (font and back)
  • Immigration document e.g. work permit or visa

Our team will then be able to verify your right to work in the UK using the Gov.UK right work checking system.

If you have any questions, then please do get in touch and we’d be more than happy to support you with your query. If you would like to register with us for work in schools, then send your CV and we’ll have one of our consultants get in touch.
