Job description

We are seeking to appoint an HR Compliance Coordinator, to join our small HR Compliance team within the Human Resources Division.

As an integral part of the HR Compliance team, you will take on a variety of tasks relating to our frontline customer-focused services, and the ongoing administration of the University’s visa sponsorship and Disclosure & Barring Service processes. You’ll have the opportunity to work with colleagues across the Human Resources Division, as well as the wider University community, to deliver on our compliance duties.

You’ll be a strong administrator who’s interested in developing and broadening your knowledge about current UK Visa & Immigration sponsorship routes, Right to Work legislation, and DBS regulations, and be ready to apply this knowledge every day with our service-users.

With a new immigration system still in its infancy, a renewed momentum to move towards digital immigration status, and the introduction of Identity Document Validation Technology, this is an exciting time to be working in compliance, and you’ll help lay the groundwork for our new ways of working as we adapt to these changes.

Please contact Bethany King for informal enquiries.

The University of Sussex values the diversity of its staff and students and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
