A: During your video appointment, you will be asked to present your student ID card and an original document which evidences your eligibility to work in the UK (please note we are not able to accept copies or scans). These can be (but are not limited to):
- UK Passport
- EU Passport
- EU Identity Card
- Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)
The link below provides details of alternative documents which can be accepted to prove your eligibility to work:Right to work checklist
- UK/EEA nationals see Checklist A
- Non-EEA nationals see Checklist B
If you are an international student on a Tier 4 visa, you will also be required to provide proof of your term/vacation dates for the current academic year (unless you are a PGR student, in which case you won't need to provide your term dates as you're restricted to 20 hours all year round).
We are required by the University to re-check all students’ Right to Work on an annual basis (or sooner if your Tier 4 visa expires).
Once you have completed your Right to Work check, you will be issued with a Jobshop Casual Worker Permit (this replaces the old Jobshop Registration cards). A Jobshop Casual Worker Permit will be issued to students following a firm offer of work and a successful Right to Work check (you will not need a Permit until you have been offered work). This Permit confirms to your line manager that you have completed the necessary right to work checks and are able to undertake work within the University and through the Jobshop. You will need to show your line manager your Permit before you commence work for them. Without a Permit you cannot start work so if you have work arranged but don't yet have your Permit, please contact the Jobshop immediately: Jobshop@cardiff.ac.uk
Jobshop Casual Worker Permits will usually be valid for 12 months from date of issue unless:
- You are a Tier 4 student with a BRP expiry date which is sooner OR
- Your course end date (plus 3 months) is sooner
The expiry date of your Right to Work check will be clearly shown on your Permit.
