Campus Jobs Right to Work ID Checklist

A Right to Work check is a legal requirement, and only certain ID is permitted.  Following the guidance in step three of the registration flowchart, please see below for examples of ID required for a valid Right to Work Check to take place.

If you are unable to attend the drop-in for this check, as you are no longer in Lincoln, Campus Jobs can offer a virtual check via an MS Teams video meeting.  Please carefully read the list below and email Campus Jobs to confirm the ID you will be using.  Once this has been confirmed, a member of the team will be able to advise you on your next steps within 3 working days.
