jobBest practice guide to finding employment in UK as a professional

UK has immigration policy which restricts entry of foreign nationals from certain countries and places visa requirements before they can work in UK.
Please check out the current official list to determine if you require a Visa to enter and work in UK here.


The Tier 2 visa is now one of the most important entry routes into the United Kingdom for skilled workers who are citizens of countries outside of the European Economic Area. In all cases, if you are applying for entry under this visa scheme you MUST be in possession of a job offer and a Certificate of Sponsorship from a UK employer with a valid Tier 2 sponsorship licence. You must fulfil the requirements of the particular Tier 2 visa for which you are applying.

Step 1

Check if you qualify to apply for Tier 2 Visa under the current points based system


As a rough guide if you are educated to Bachelor or Masters level, have the equivalent of £900 in your bank account for the last 3 months, know English well, and will be earning more than £32,000 per annum you will gain enough points to qualify for a visa.

Step 2

Secure a job offer with UK employer with a valid Tier 2 sponsorship licence

There are two distinct routes you can follow here:


a) Apply to UK employers who are registered as Tier 2 sponsors directly aiming to fill in job offerings they currently advertise


If you follow this route we recommend starting by searching our Tier 2 sponsors database to identify employers and search for job offerings on their websites.
Once you have chosen the positions you want to apply for, then prepare your CV and Covering Letter and send to employers. We offer CV editing and Covering letter writing to help you at this stage.
When you secure an interview make sure you thoroughly prepare for it in advance. We can help by offering mock interviews and advice.

b) Look directly for contracting positions - this works especially well for IT contractors and other professionals in high demand.


We recommend starting by looking for contracts on job websites and registering with agencies that advertise contract positions.
Once you narrow down the contracts you want to apply for then submit you CV and Covering letter directly. We offer CV editing and Covering letter writing to help you at this stage.
When you secure an interview make sure you thoroughly prepare for it in advance. We can help by offering mock interviews and advice.
Once you secure a contract offer than approach an Umbrella company that is on the Tier 2 register list. We offer a list of such companies here

Step 3

Ask your employer to issue you with a Certificate of Sponsorship
