Guidance for non-UK candidates - Proving the right to work legally in the United Kingdom

Icon has an obligation to confirm a person has a right to be in and/or work in the United Kingdom. We recognise that many people from minority ethnic groups living in the UK who are British citizens or otherwise are entitled to work here. To make sure we do not discriminate against individuals on race grounds our recruitment practice is to treat all job applications in the same way.

If you are invited to attend an interview, the Chair of the Interview Panel verify you have produced the required evidence of your eligibility to work in the UK and that all your documents are valid and original (please do not take photocopies as they are not acceptable forms of evidence). You will also be expected to complete a declaration form to confirm that you are entitled to work and take on a student bursary in the UK for the duration of this internship.  If you are successful at interview the verified copies will be filed for the duration of your internship at Icon and for possible future reference.  For further information visit
