EU Staff at Aston and Brexit

EU Staff and brexit

This page has been designed to help to support our many staff across all areas of the University who are directly affected by the UK’s decision to leave the EU by the end of April 2019. 

The University fully recognises that the uncertainty to date over the legal status of your residence after 2019 has been a source of anxiety and concern.  This page will provide updates as and when they become available and also signpost staff to the most recent and relevant sources of information and guidance.

The University has established a working group of the Executive, chaired by myself, to ensure every effort is made to put in place measures to assist our staff. We recognise that this can take a range of forms, and we will be focusing on practical aspects to help colleagues navigate a complex set of rules and regulations. We are also very conscious that non-EU nationals will also be affected and this group of our staff is explicitly included in our considerations. Please do contact your line manager or HR Advisor if you have any immediate concerns. 

A key source of the University’s strength is the diversity of its staff and maintaining that is a top priority for us all.
