Do I need to have a work permit to apply for a role? Save the Children are required by law to ensure that all our employees have the right to work in the country that they are employed in.

The majority of our roles are based in the UK and therefore you would need to have the right to work in the UK, even if you travel as part of your role, we would issue you with a UK contract

For most of the roles in the UK you will need a valid work permit. Individuals from countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) must be in possession of a work permit to allow them to take up employment. For more information please visit the Government's Working in the UK website.

Our ability to gain a UK work permit for potential employees from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) depends upon several factors. This includes the type of visa a candidate may currently possess if they are already resident in the UK and the skill level of the job advertised. In certain circumstances Save the Children UK may have the ability to support a candidate in their first steps to obtain a work permit if we can demonstrate that we could not recruit for a position from within the EEA.
