Right to work in the UK

If you are successful in your application, you will be required to demonstrate your right to work in the UK before you start work with us. The Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 specifies that employers can only employ people who are legally permitted to work in the UK. The regulations require an employer to verify that right by checking and copying certain documents.

You can find out about eligibility to work in the UK and information on document requirements in the following document: Checklist of acceptable documents. Further information can also be found at https://www.gov.uk/visas-immigration

Disclosure and Barring Services (formerly CRB) Procedure

Roehampton University is committed to safeguarding and protecting children and vulnerable groups. Requests for a DBS disclosure will be made for relevant posts in accordance with the eligibility criteria as set out by the Vetting and Barring Scheme. All applicants will need to disclose any unspent (current) convictions at the outset of the recruitment process. However for roles which require a DBS check and are therefore exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, applicants will need to disclose both unspent and spent convictions.


All offers of appointment are issued on the basis of receiving and verifying references from previous and/or current employment.
