About right to work

Remote hiring for a digital world

Calling all employers and HR professionals! Say goodbye to manual document checks in the employee vetting process. New guidance from the UK Home Office allows you to harness the power of digital identity for Right to Work for UK and Irish citizens.

As the UK’s first certified Identity Services Provider (IDSP), Yoti and Post Office have built the most flexible set of identity verification channels. The best bit? Compliance is on us. We’ll arm you with a statutory excuse to avoid a civil penalty, so you can have one less thing to worry about.

How Right To Work works

Offer candidates two ways to prove their Right to Work


Online ID verification

First-time candidates can upload their documents and a selfie to your website or app.


Reusable ID app

Frequent movers can create a reusable digital ID on their phone and share identity details pre-verified by Yoti.

UK government certified

Yoti and Post Office are the UK’s first certified Identity Services Provider (IDSP) under the Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework.

Keep sensitive information out of your inbox

We’ll send you a report including an image of the candidate’s passport to you with the metadata that includes our certification as an Identity Services Provider (IDSP).

You can securely store employee data on our encrypted systems and access it when you need. Or view it in our portal for easy candidate management.

Digital DBS

Combine Right to Work with a DBS check

For many candidates, you’ll need to verify their Right to Work and perform a DBS check. The good news is that we’re a certified identity services provider for both.

That means you can use one identity check as part of a DBS check and for Right to Work.


All data is protected by 256-bit encryption. Yoti is SOC2 compliant and certified to ISO27001.


We’re the UK’s first certified Identity Services Provider (IDSP) to the Digital Identity & Attributes Trust Framework.


As an IDSP, compliance is our responsibility – so you can have one less thing to worry about.
