What are the Codes of Practice?
Before a Tier 2 Licensed company can ‘sponsor’ a worker from outside the EEA it must ensure that the job it wishes to sponsor the migrant worker for is in line with the relevant Codes of Practice and meets all relevant conditions. If the job does not meet the conditions the company will be unable to sponsor the worker.
Each Section of the Codes of Practice contains Standard Occupation Classification Codes or SOC codes as they are commonly known. An employer must find the most relevant SOC code for the role they wish to employ the migrant worker under and follow all employment conditions.
Each SOC code detailed in the Codes of Practice contains a SOC Code Description, Related Job Titles and Examples of Job Tasks. Once you have found the correct SOC code you must drill down to the relevant Job Title to find the required annual salary for the role and suitable advertising locations.
