Umbrella Solutions for Tier 1 Post Study Contractors

If you are interested in Consulting on a Tier 1 Post Study Work Visa it is important to work with a company that is Tier 2 Licensed so that you can move to a Tier 2 General Visa at the end of your leave.

Now that Tier 1 General (formerly the HSMP) has been cancelled the only option for remaining in the UK past the expiry of a Tier 1 Post Study Work Visa is to secure Tier 2 Work Permit Sponsorship with a UKBA licensed employer.

If you’re a highly skilled IT Consultant and you are currently consulting in the UK on a Tier 1 Post Study Work Visa we have the perfect umbrella solution for you.

Umbrella Solutions for Tier 1 General Contractors

If you possess a Tier 1 General visa you’re in a very fortunate situation as now that the visa class has been cancelled the only other real option is a restrictive employer sponsored Tier 2 General Visa (formerly UK Work Permit).
