If you are not a UK or EEA national then you may need to obtain permission to live and work in the UK.
Should we offer you a post we will also apply for a certificate of sponsorship for you. This certificate enables you to apply for a visa to enter and remain in the UK. Further information and guidance about work permission can be found on the Human Resources webpages.
For some jobs (typically those at the lower grades) if you do not already have permission to live and work in the UK then you will not be able to apply. This is because we cannot get certificates of sponsorship for these roles.
