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.
