Tier 2 work visas for IT professionals
The Tier 2 General Visa is the main ‘UK Work Permit’, and requires sponsorship by an approved employer.
UK Tier 2 (General) visa sponsorship can be an option:
- For Graduate level jobs (which can be filled by experienced non graduates)
- Where the role is recognised as being a ‘Shortage Occupation’ OR where it has been advertised for a month & no suitable locals have come forward
We are often able to help professionals in IT, Finance, & Engineering with Tier 2 visa solutions.
Sponsorship must come from a company with a Licence issued by the Home Office.We can help companies get the advice and support needed for a successful licence application.
