Internal transfers / changes to a job

Departments should check that any employee who transfers internally has current entitlement to work in the UK. Other pre-employment screening will be based on the duties of the role. If an employee’s role or duties change significantly, their suitability for such new work should be re-evaluated and it may be that certain screening checks will need to be carried out.

Where an employee with a Tier 2 work visa transfers jobs internally or has changes to their existing job, additional Home Office reporting requirements may apply. The Staff Immigration Team must be notified in all such cases.
