Workers Without British Passports

Working rights in the United Kingdom

For information only

Current British legislation only allows for some nationals of countries outside the UK to legally take up employment.

We cannot put people forward for jobs if they do not have a legal right to work.

This has changed following the UK's departure from the European Union.

For details please see

It is possible for employers to apply for a work permit for a specific individual, but they must be licenced to issue appointments of this type. It is not our experience that they will wish to go through that process and use our services as well.

The law has become increasingly more stringent and placing greater responsibilities (and penalties) on employers and employment agencies with regard to ensuring candidates have legal working status. Expect to be asked to prove your right to work and provide some proof of ID, even if you are a native of the United Kingdom.
