Process

If you are considering employing staff based overseas, or posting an existing member of staff on an overseas assignment, you should contact your HR Business Partner as soon as possible.  They will liaise with other specialists (both internal and external, as required) to ensure that you are provided with the appropriate advice and guidance.  It is important that advice is sought before any commitment is given to employing staff overseas.


If planning to employ staff overseas as part of a grant proposal and you wish to employ them through a partner organisation or other third party this may need to be identified within the grant application.
