Eligibility Criteria for recruitment to Specialty Training 2017 – Immigration requirements

UK and EEA nationals and doctors whose immigration status entitles them to work as a doctor in training in the UK are eligible to apply for specialty training. Evidence of immigration status would be a biometric residence card, date stamped passport and/or identity card. All of these documents need to be dated as at or prior to the application closing date.

Doctors who are not UK or EEA nationals but whose immigration status entitles them to work without restriction in the UK will be considered on an equal basis with UK and EEA nationals. Other non-UK or non-EEA nationals with limited leave to remain in the UK and whose employment will require Tier 2 sponsorship are subject to the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT). Applicants who are subject to RLMT will not be eligible for appointment in this specialty until all suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidates have been appointed and the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT) has been satisfied. The RLMT will not be satisfied in Round 1 of recruitment so applicants to which the RLMT applies are strongly advised to pursue their applications in Round 2 of recruitment.
