Right to work in the UK 

All applicants will be requested to produce valid right to work documents. 

From 1 July 2021, EU/EEA citizens will need to either provide confirmation that they have obtained EU settlement status, have another valid right to work visa (e.g. dependent visa) or will need to apply for Tier 2 sponsorship. 

Please note that medical practitioners are now part of the Shortage Occupation List and the Health and Care visa route is available to medical and dental practitioners.  For applicants who require sponsorship, it is important to be aware of the Home Office requirements below.

Home Office Requirements

  • Criminal Records Certificates

The Home Office requires those applying to come to the UK as a Tier 2 worker, and their adult dependants, aged 18 or over, to produce a criminal record certificate from any country in which they have been resident for 12 months or more, consecutively or cumulatively, in the previous 10 years.

If applicants are successful in being appointed to a training programme in the UK, and require Tier 2 sponsorship, they will be required to provide the criminal record certificate to the Home Office when they make their visa application. As it can take some time to obtain a criminal record certificate, applicants should begin the process of seeking certificates, if required, at the earliest opportunity.  Please note, that this is for entry clearance applications only, so will only be applicable if applying from outside the UK.

Details of how to obtain such a check from the relevant authorities abroad is available on the Home Office website at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/criminal-records-checks-for-overseas-applicants

Public bodies cannot offer to certify maintenance on the Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS).  If applicants are successful in being appointed to a training programme in the UK, and require Tier 2 sponsorship, they will be required to provide evidence of maintenance (funds) to the Home Office when they make their visa application.

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks (formally Criminal Record Bureau checks)
