UK Work Visa for Australians

Do you work in IT / Finance / Engineering / Telecommunications?

We have a toolkit to help you find an English contract and we’re giving it to you for FREE.

Did you know:
Over the last quarter the average rate for UK contractors increased to £31.25 per hour. Why? One big reason is increased regulation and compliance for London Banks and insurance firms. More regulation = new IT systems = lots of contracts in Britain for Australian IT consultants with experience in financial services!
Now is a great time to get a Work Visa:
There are more than 1725 additional Tier 2 work permits available for registered sponsoring employers every month and the UKBA have approved EVERY sponsorship application since April 2011. Our partners are registered English Companies that Sponsor Work Visas and can process a new application in just 2 weeks (max 6 weeks). Even better - if you are on a Tier 1 (HSMP) or Tier 2 (ICT) visa we can process your application in-country. This means you don’t have to leave the UK to activate your new visa!

We process a lot of Australian Tier 5 visa holders who are contracting in the UK and want to stay longer. As a Tier 5 visa holder you will need to leave the UK and get a new "Entry Clearance" in order to switch onto a Tier 2, but the process is very straightforward and can take as little as 2 weeks. If you want to know more about switching from a Tier 5 to a Tier 2 you can contact us on our form or have a look at our Tier 5 Transfer Guide.

Ask us for Free Information on Employers for UK Work Visas.
All you need to get sponsored by one of our partners is a contract for 3 months or more that pays at least £300 per day. The permit lasts 3 years and is extendable another 2 years so you can use it to get Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR = UK permanent residency). Your sponsor will handle your work permit, invoicing, tax and payment. All you have to do is go to work, fill in your timesheets and watch the money roll in!
You’ll be working in London, earning ££££ and living the life. You can catch the train to Paris for a night OR go to a show in the West End OR fly to Italy for a long weekend OR soak up the galleries and museums and history. Anyway you get the picture… contracting in England is a fun adventure!
