The transition phase for the UK leaving the EU ended on December 31st 2020, which has diminished the free movement of EU citizens. On January 1st 2021, a new points-based immigration system was put in place for people arriving into the UK; thus, all EU citizens moving to the UK to work will need to obtain a visa in advance.
Right To Work Checks
You will need to verify, as you do now, the right of a job applicant to work in the UK, with their national identity card or passport. However, after June 30th 2021, employers will require a sponsor license to hire a majority of workers from outside the UK, due to the new immigration rules.
