Your appointment as External Examiner or External Advisor for the University of Salford is subject to the University receiving evidence of your right to work in the UK. This evidence must be received prior to your appointment.
UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) regulations require that all organisations obtain proof of the right to work in the UK for every individual who carries out work for them. The UKVI’s definition of “work” is broad and includes the activities that External Examiners and External Advisors carry out. Therefore, we request that you provide this evidence to ensure compliance with the legal requirements and that our records are up-to-date. We thank you in advance for your cooperation with these steps.
The Home Office has a prescribed list of documents it deems as acceptable for proving an individual’s right to work in the country. We need you to show us the original documents listed in this link as applicable to your circumstances. If you have changed your name, including following marriage, please note the requirement to provide additional supporting documentation as proof of change of name.
In line with the Government's Right to Work Checklist we must see the original evidence of right to work (we cannot accept certified copies) therefore you have two options as set out below. Please note, that if you have time limited leave to remain in the UK, there will be additional steps in order to ensure that the activities that you would be doing at Salford are in line with your rights – to be advised by the QEO.
Option A - If it is practicable for you to visit the University prior to your appointment.
Bring the necessary papers/documents to the Quality and Enhancement Office (QEO), Ground Floor Reception, Crescent House (Monday - Friday between 10:00 am and 4.00pm). QEO staff will process your documentation within approximately 15 minutes. See below for the full address.
Option B - If it is not practicable for you to visit the University prior to your appointment.
We will arrange to carry out a review of your right to work via live video connection such as Skype or Facetime. The steps are as follows:
Please note that we do not accept certified copies as evidence of right to work.
If you do not provide your right to work documents in accordance with the above procedure, the University will be unable to confirm your appointment as External Examiner or External Advisor and will not be able to set you up on our systems and/or make any payment to you in relation to the role.
