Applicants who require Tier 2 immigration status to work in the UK are welcome, but such candidates will not be appointed to the post if there are a sufficient number of other suitable candidates as the employing body will in those circumstances be unable to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test, as required by UKBI.
In view of recent changes to Home Office Immigration Regulations, all applicants must state their current immigration status, including expiry dates.

All job offers are subject to Agenda for Change T&C’s, excluding medical posts. Offers may also be subject to a Standard or Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate, dependent on the position.

HDFT takes its responsibility for the Safeguarding of Children and Vulnerable Adults seriously. Each member of staff must comply with the HDFT policy, procedures and strategies relating to Safeguarding.

In submitting an application form, you authorise Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust to confirm any previous NHS service details via the ESR IAT process should you be appointed.


Disclosure and Barring Service Check

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly known as CRB) to check for any previous criminal convictions.


Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.
