There are two main things we check during your application:

  1. Your right to work in the UK 
  2. A background check carried out by Accurate

Right to work in the UK

The right to work check proves that you are legally allowed to work in the UK.

You have 2 different options for carrying out this check: do it in person with a Stuart employee at an onboarding session, or do it independently at the post office. 

Documents you will need:

1. Passport. If you do not have a passport, we can accept birth certificates* together with your NI (National Insurance) number.

*The post office does not verify birth certificates, we will ask you to upload a picture of the original together with an NI card or an official NI letter

2. For applicants from outside the EU: passport and biometric residence permit.

3. You will need proof of address (should be no older than 3 months).
