Visas & Immigration Guidance

 

Our Visas & Immigration Guidance provides information on how to comply with UK Visa & Immigration legislation (UKVI), and the University's practices in relation to the recruitment and employment of employees with limited leave to remain and work in the UK.

 
It is essential that a Right to Work check is conducted in advance of an individual completing any work for the University.  Failure to hold the correct Right to Work documentation means the University could lose our Category A ranking in order to employ Tier 2 workers. This would prevent the University employing people from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who require sponsorship.
 
If you have any questions regarding UKVI, contact the HR Services team on 3344 or via humanresources@napier.ac.uk .

 

Right to Work Checks

 

Right to Work checks will be conducted by the HR department, and HR will notify the respective manager that this is complete. The Recruitment team will undertake Right to Work checks for advertised roles as part of the on-boarding process.
 
HR will be available to carry out these checks at the following locations/ times:

Sighthill Campus, Room 5.B.29, anytime

Merchiston Campus, Room C96, Tuesday 9am-12pm & 1-5pm, Wednesday 9am-12pm

Craiglockhart Campus, Atrium Glass Room, Wednesday 1pm-5pm, Thursday 9am-12pm & 1pm-5pm 

 

Right to Work checks should be carried out within these allocated timeslots, however we understand that there may be circumstances that this is not possible. In such cases, please contact the HR team in advance and we will arrange for someone to be present on the day to carry out the check/s.
If HR is not present on campus and a right to work check is required, this can be conducted by the respective department or school as an exception. If you are conducting a Right to Work Check, please refer to the Right to Work Checklist.
Please note, it is the responsibility of the individual School/Service to ensure that appointment paperwork is completed allowing enough time, in advance of the start date, for the Right to Work check to be completed.
If you have any questions please contact the HR Services team on 3344 or via humanresources@napier.ac.uk.
