UK Working Visa - Tier 2 : Business & Commercial

Work Permit applications for positions, which do not come within Tier I, it will be necessary for the UK employer to carry out an acceptable UK resident labour test before the Work Permit can be applied for. However, the minimum qualification and\or experience requirements of the Work Permit Scheme apply in full to Tier 2 applications; please ring us today for a full explanation of an applicant's eligibility in this category.

Only an employer can sign a work permit application. This must be an established UK based business, with a provable physical and trading presence.

Testing the resident workforce:

The employer must "test the resident workforce", which is compulsory. Work permits (UK) will need to see some evidence that the employer has tried and failed to recruit from the resident workforce. This means that the position needs to have been advertised in the most appropriate medium for reaching suitably qualified or experienced 'resident workers'. This may be a professional journal or the relevant employment section of a national newspaper or website. The publications or other media you use should be readily available throughout the EEA. You may use a recruitment agency to assist you however we advise that you search for the worker by the other means described above. Please contact us before you place an advert so we may guide you in this matter.

Pay and conditions:

Employers please note that the pay and conditions you offer to the applicant, must be comparable to those, which would normally be paid to a resident worker with the same skills, carrying out the same work. For instance offering a worker the salary of £22,000 for an IT position would jeaopordise the application but between £25,000-28,000 would improve your application.
