The Employer Partnership: A Professional Journey
Key to obtaining a Skilled Worker visa is securing a job offer from a UK company with a sponsor licence.
This requirement signifies your dedication to professionalism and the demonstration of expertise in your chosen field. However, this condition, although supportive, does involve certain complexities. If you intend to switch employers, the process might appear a bit perplexing. Transitioning to a new professional chapter entails restarting the sponsorship journey. Unveiling Eligibility: Requirements
The heart of eligibility for sponsorship lies in a few critical factors:
- the job in question is listed on the eligible occupations and codes page of the gov.uk website
- the rate of pay must meet the Home Office's designated figure or exceed £25,600 per year and £10.10 per hour, whichever is higher. Exceptions do exist, particularly for new entrants to the job market and positions on the Shortage Occupation List
- proficiency in English at the B1 level on the CEFR scale
- access to maintenance funds, demonstrating financial reliability with at least £1,270 in your bank account for 28 consecutive days before applying for the visa.
