The University of Sussex is committed to equality of opportunity and we encourage diversity in the workplace. The current British and European Law states that we cannot employ a person aged 16 or over who does not have permission to live and work in the UK. You should make yourself aware of how immigration laws apply to your situation before applying for any jobs. (Refer: Home Office website: www.homeoffice.gov.uk/)
Under the new Points Based System (PBS) the University may be able to issue a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS). The decision on whether to issue a CoS would depend on the resident labour market test being met and the likelihood of the preferred candidate being able to attain the required points to qualify under the PBS.
