Documents to bring to interview

When you attend your interview at Hampshire County Council you will be required to provide a number of original documents

You need to:

  • prove you have a legal right to work in the UK
  • show you hold the relevant qualifications or registration to carry out the role

Certain vacancies are also subject to the receipt of a criminal record check (also known as a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check). If needed, the advertisement and Job Summary and Person Specification will state this.

Proof that you have a legal right to work in the UK

Hampshire County Council needs to meet its legal obligation under the Immigration, Asylum & Nationality Act 2006. We need checked documents to show you are eligible to work in the United Kingdom.
