A Tier 2 work visa requires sponsorship from a UK company, meaning you’ll need to find a sponsored job with an employer who is appropriately licensed. Following the changes to immigration law made in 2011 most workers will enter on this tier 2 work permit.
Which jobs offer visa sponsorship in the UK?
In order to provide a sponsored job in the UK, a company must be a licensed sponsor on the country’s register. Some companies may even seek licensure specifically to hire you, but go here to check out an official list of existing sponsors. Large companies are more likely to be registered.
Are there any limitations on sponsored jobs in the UK?
You need to be working for the company who is officially sponsoring your work permit, and your primary source of income must be from this work. This means if you are after permanent employment you need to get sponsored by the end client, and they must be licensed to issue you with a Certificate of Sponsorship.
