Compliance Requirements and Guidelines


As part of our standard procedures, we require certain compliance documents from all new employees. This is to ensure that we comply with all legal and regulatory employment laws including anti-discrimination, right to work and safeguarding regulations. The information below outlines all of the documentation we require and examples of suitable documents. It is important that all documentation provided is clear and legible so please consider this when providing digital copies/photographs of your documents.
