Evidence of Right to Work in the UK

Seven has a legal responsibility to ensure that all of its employees have the legal right to live and work in the UK.

Therefore, if you are made an offer of employment, this will be subject to Seven verifying that you are eligible to work in the UK before you begin employment with us. 

If you are invited to interview, you will be asked to bring original documents from List A or List B with you and a copy will be taken. If you cannot provide evidence of right to work in the UK at interview stage, this must be provided before you can take up employment with us.  Please note, a start date will not be confirmed until this information has been provided and verified.

What if I don’t yet have the right to work in the UK?

If you don’t already have the legal right to work in the UK, you are still welcome to apply for a job with Seven.

The most common route through which you can gain the right to work in the UK is through the points-based system, although there are other relevant routes depending on any family or ancestral links you may have with the UK.

If you are made an offer of employment with Seven and you intend to seek permission to work in the UK, you must first obtain a Certificate of Sponsorship from Seven. This will require that the job is skilled to at least degree level or above, and meets the minimum salary requirements for the role.

We strongly recommend that you consult the Apply for a UK visa section of the Home Office webpages to determine your suitability for a UK visa.

Any job application you submit to us will be assessed using criteria based on the knowledge, skills and experience required for the relevant post. You will not be treated less favourably than another applicant on the grounds of national origin. However, any offer of employment we make to you will be conditional upon you gaining permission to work in the UK. By law, you will not be able to start working for us until you are able to provide evidence that this permission has been granted.

Please note, not all roles within Seven will meet the eligibility criteria for sponsorship. We will of course notify you if this is the case.

You will need to produce documents from List B in order to provide evidence of your right to work before you can be employed
