Right to work
People and Culture is required to verify the original RTW documents of all new staff prior to the start date in order to demonstrate clear compliance with Home Office regulations. Failure to do so may result in the University losing its licenses to sponsor individuals to work/study here, hence the importance and seriousness of these checks being undertaken correctly and in advance.
Once all of the necessary checks have been completed successfully, the Resourcing Team will be able to add the individual to the HR database which will generate their Essex email address, and issue the statement of main terms and conditions of service to the successful candidate.
Qualifications - certified translations
Your new starter may be asked to provide evidence of qualifications and/or professional registration as part of the recruitment process. If these documents are not in English they will need to obtain an officially certified translation before we can confirm the appointment.
Translations can be provided by the awarding institution or alternatively via a certified translator. There are a number of commercial translation services available online.
If the translated certificate is not provided by the awarding institution they must ensure the translation includes:
- confirmation from the translator that it’s a true and accurate translation of the original document
- the date of translation
- full name and contact details of the translator, or an authorised official of the company
