Right to Work in the UK: Settled Status

Help in applying for Settled Status following Brexit

At Driver Hire we welcome quality candidates from every background. We are committed to helping you to build a successful career in logistics.

Following the UK’s departure from the EU, the rules have changed for overseas workers. In particular, if you’re an EU National who was living in the UK before 31st December 2020 you must apply for Settled or Pre-Settled status by the end of June 2021 if you wish to remain in the UK and be eligible for work.

If this applies to you or your family members, we want to help.

Don’t worry, the process of applying for your new immigration status is quite simple – but you need to act now.

Apply for Settled Status

If you are an EU citizen, you and your family members must apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30th June 2021.

You can make a start now by clicking on this link.

This is required even if you already have a permanent residence document. As an EU citizen, or as a non-EU family member of an EU citizen, the scheme allows you to continue to live, work and study here.

Your Settled Status will mean that you will still have the right to public services (like healthcare and schooling), pensions and public funds. You’ll also be able to apply for British citizenship.

You do not need to apply if you have indefinite leave to remain or enter, or if you are an Irish citizen.

Eligibility rules:

You can apply for Settled Status if you were a UK resident on or before 31st December 2020. If you have been a resident for less than five continuous years, you will be eligible for Pre-Settled Status. You must not be a serious or persistent criminal, a threat to national security, or have a deportation order, exclusion order or exclusion decision against you.

For full information on the scheme, please visit the gov.uk website.

If you have any questions, please just ask your Driver Hire office. We’ll be happy to help.
