UK and Irish national Right to Work check

As per the current Government requirements, we are working with a partner company to run an IDSP check to review your Right to Work. This can be done remotely if you have a valid UK or Irish passport.

Prove your Right to Work as a UK or Irish national:

  1. Prepare your Right to Work documents

    We need to verify your passport. This must be a valid document.

  2. Complete your Right to Work check

    First, add your passport to your profile:

    • Open the Coople Jobs App

    • Tap on Profile

    • Tap on Documents

    • Add a photo of your passport

    Follow these tips to add a photo of your documents

    • To add your passport, take a photo of the biometric details page. This is the page where your full name and photograph are visible.

    • Check that the document is visible and that it fits into the white border.

    • Make sure that the text is clear and easy to read before adding it to your profile.

    • Retake the photo if the information is difficult to read.

    Secondly, start your online Right to Work check

    Once you’ve uploaded your documentation, you can start your online Right to Work check from the app. You'll see the following message:

    Tap on it and get started!

    You’ll need to scan your passport here also so make sure you have it at hand.

    Please have a good internet connection, good lighting, and follow the instructions carefully.

What happens next?

A member of our team will verify your Right to Work details. This usually takes less than 24 hours during weekdays. Once we approve your Right to Work, you will be able to apply for jobs that suit your profile.

If you are a UK or Irish national but need to prove your Right to Work with documents other than a passport, please book a time to meet us in person.

An in-person Right to Work check can be arranged at our Coople Office in London:

Please note: you must bring your Right to Work documents with you, and they must be the original documents.

Below is a list of documents that we can accept as proof of Right to Work:

  • A UK or Irish passport

We need to see your ORIGINAL documents and CANNOT accept documents that are damaged, and we must ask for an alternative form of ID.
