If you do not have the right to work in the UK for immigration purposes, you should think carefully before applying. This is because even if the role is sufficiently skilled to qualify for a Tier 2 visa, we will only be able to sponsor you if no other suitably qualified settled worked has applied for the role or your current visa category means that we are not required to fulfil the resident labour market test under the relevant Tier 2 sponsorship rules.
