Welcome to Human Resources

Delivery of Services from September 2021

Recruitment – Managers are encouraged to continue to conduct interviews online.  Guidance for this is available here.

DBS checks – These are now fully managed online and will continue to be.  You can access the DBS system here.

Right to Work checks – The Home Office has issued revised guidance that where it is not practical to carry out an in-person document check that an adjusted right to work process may continue through to the 5th April 2022. These adjustments will allow the checks to be carried out over video calls and sending scanned documents or a photo of documents using email rather than sending originals. The appropriate method will be identified as part of onboarding. For clarification please speak to your HR Assistant or email hr@lincoln.ac.uk
