Other essential information
Application closing date: Tuesday 31st May 2022
Successful candidates must pass basic security checks and will be subject to UK Immigration requirements.
Changes to the UK’s Immigration following the UK’s departure from the EU
Please note there is now a new immigration system which will apply to people arriving in the UK from 1 January 2021, and EU citizens moving to the UK to work after this date will need to get a visa in advance.
EU citizens applying for a skilled worker visa must now show they have a job offer from an approved employer sponsor to be able to apply. Currently, the Coal Authority is not an approved employer sponsor, so we will be unable to employ any new EU citizens wishing to work in the UK after 1 January 2021.
EU citizens who were already living and working in the UK before 1 January 2021 may continue to do so, providing they meet all the requirements and they apply to the EU Settlement Scheme before 30 June 2021. This will mean that they can continue to live the UK after 30 June 2021. If you are an EU citizen who has lived in the UK for many years or you have a permanent residence document, you still need to apply.
