HAVE YOU BEEN OFFERED FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT IN THE UK BECAUSE YOU POSSESS NICHE SKILLS? HAVE YOU APPLIED FOR YOUR DREAM JOB IN THE UK BUT ARE UNSURE IF YOU CAN JOIN THE COMPANY DUE TO VISA RESTRICTIONS?
Here is what we did for one of our clients to assist him to migrate to the UK and start his dream job.
Mr S is an Indian national who recently visited the UK for business purposes. Prior to his arrival, he had been applying for Jobs within the IT sector as he possessed niche skills which are rare in the UK. During his business trip to the UK, a prospective sponsor invited him for an interview after a tough selection process.
Mr S attended the interview, and within hours he had been offered the job he had been dreaming of for years. As he was a Non-EEA national applying for a Tier 2 (General) visa, he required a Restricted Certificate of Sponsorship (RCoS) to enable to submit his entry clearance application from his country of residence.
As a specialist, Tier 2 law firm, A Y & J Solicitors is often approached for assistance with visa applications and entry clearance issues. Mr S’s prospective employer approached us and requested our expertise in enabling this Non-EEA candidate to join their company. We assigned a dedicated caseworker who dealt with everything from helping the sponsor assign an RCoS, to advising Mr S on the mandatory documents for his Tier 2 (G) entry clearance visa, completing and submitting his application, and booking an appointment with UKVI.
The legal representations drafted by our firm and the care/attention paid to the case enabled Mr S to obtain a positive result on his Tier 2 Entry Clearance within a few hours of submission.
Mr S and his employer were very impressed with the level of service provided to them by A Y & J Solicitors. With our help, Mr S has recently entered the UK to start his dream job, and his employer has retained an important contract having found the specialist skills they urgently required. It was our pleasure to help both the individual and the company meet their Tier 2 immigration needs.
