Right to Work

Your appointment as External Examiner for the University of Salford is subject to the University receiving evidence of your right to work in the UK. As you may be aware, the UKVI requires that all organisations obtain proof of the right to work in the UK for every individual who carries out work for them. Therefore, we request that you provide this evidence to ensure future compliance with the legal requirements and that our records are up-to-date.

The UKVI has a prescribed list of documents it deems as acceptable for proving an individual’s right to work in the country. Therefore, you are required to provide any of the original documents listed in this link.

It is recognised that the nature of External Examining means that individuals carrying out work for the University of Salford may be based some distance away and we appreciate that visiting the University in the immediate future may not be practical. Therefore, in order to accommodate these difficulties, we have put in place the following arrangements:

1. If you live within practical distance of the University, it is requested you bring the necessary papers/documents to the Quality and Enhancement Office in G06, Crescent House (Monday - Friday between 10:00 am and 4.00pm) prior to commencing any work for the University.

2. If you are not able to visit the University to present the documents to us in person prior to commencing work, the University will accept a verified copy of the original documents required, although please note that we may be required to see the original documents in the future.

The copy provided must be verified by one of the below:

Human Resources within your employing institution

-  Dean/Pro Vice Chancellor within your employing institution

-  Registered Solicitor

For audit purposes it is important that the individual verifying the documentation certifies the following: “I {insert name} certify that this is a true copy of the original document”. Please can they also print their name, position, signature, contact details and date on each page. If you are using a passport as evidence please can you ensure that you copy not only the page with your photo and passport number but also the outside front and back cover.

Please can you return verified copies of the required documentation prior to commencement of work for the University by scanning and emailing to or by forwarding in the post to:

External Examiners
Quality and Enhancement Office
G06, Crescent House
University of Salford
The Crescent
M5 4WT

3. You will be invited to induction training and will receive further details of this in the near future. If you have not been able to provide original or scanned verified documents before the induction session takes place then it is essential that you bring the originals along to the induction training.

Unfortunately, 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 and will not be able to set you up on our systems and/or make any payment to you in relation to your role as an External Examiner.
