Guidance for EU and EEA staff

Posted by rmt22 at Sep 04, 2018 10:55 AM |
As the negotiations between the UK and the European Union continue, we are committed to providing members of staff from the EEA with further guidance and support.

Staff guidance and resources

We have created a dedicated webpage for EU staff which is your place to find out more about our preparations for the UK leaving the European Union. It contains information about the new EU Settlement Scheme as well as updated FAQs and explanations of key terms. This webpage will be kept up-to-date to reflect the developments from the negotiations, and we hope that the resources will provide you with further guidance and support as the negotiations progress.

Further briefing session – 1 November 2018

In light of recent announcements regarding the rights for EU citizens, we have invited back Tom Brett Young from our lawyers Veale Wasbrough Vizards to provide a further briefing and to explain the EU Settlement Scheme in more detail.

This session will take place from 9-10am on 1 November 2018 in the Peter Williams Lecture Theatre (Fielding Johnson Building) to coincide with the end of the current phase of negotiations. To register for this event, please click here. We also plan to hold another briefing in March 2019 – the point at which the UK is expected to leave the European Union; details for this will be announced in due course.

If there are any specific topics that you would like to put forward for consideration, please email Kate Hobday ( Notes and FAQs from the previous briefing session held in March 2017 can be found on the EU and Brexit Discussion Forum on Yammer.

One-to-one sessions

If you have particular circumstances or specific queries that are not answered by our existing resources or in the sessions, Tom Brett Young from Veale Wasbrough Vizards will be available for one-to-one consultations following the briefing on 1 November 2018. Please email Kate Hobday ( to request a place. Please note that spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.


The EU and Brexit Discussion Forum on Yammer is available for you to share resources and useful information (we will also keep this updated with useful information and hosted discussions). We have already seen EEA staff sharing their experiences on there, and we hope that you will continue to use the group.

We would like to thank you again for your continued patience and professionalism in these uncertain times.
