Although Switzerland is not part of the EEA, Swiss nationals enjoy many of the same rights, including employment in the Civil Service.
Turkish nationals are not automatically eligible for employment in non-reserved posts in the Civil Service. They are only eligible if they have been lawfully employed in the United Kingdom for four years in any job, or if they have been lawfully employed for three years in a job within the same "occupation" as the post which they wish to take up within the Civil Service.
To apply for a registration certificate confirming your right to live and work in the UK you should complete form EEA1, which can be downloaded from the UK Government website.
We are an equal opportunities employer. That means that we aim to treat everyone whether staff, colleagues from other organisations or members of the public fairly, and with respect. We believe that our workforce should reflect the people of Scotland in all its diversity, character and culture.
So, we treat all staff equally, irrespective of sex, marital status, age, race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, religion or belief, working pattern, gender identity, caring responsibility or trade union membership. We employ people on the basis of their merit – their skills, aptitudes and attitude – nothing else.
