  • Do I need to have the 'Right to Work' in the UK to apply for jobs through this site?

    Due to the specialist nature of some of the positions we recruit for, we are able to support candidates to obtain sponsorship to work in the UK for some roles, in line with legislation set by the UK Border Agency. However, most of our positions are only open to those who already have the right to live and work in the UK. All candidates will be required to provide evidence of their right to work in the UK.

    The vacancies where we are not able to sponsor candidates should have a strapline to that advise candidates need to have right to work, however if you are ever unsure please contact jobs@uksbs.co.uk and we will be able to confirm.

    Please note for UK SBS vacancies, UK SBS does not hold a sponsorship licence so we are only able to accept applications for candidates with the right to work in the UK.
