You are 100% right. I have seen a legit Agency that request for service charge for employment. The money will be paid immediately the CoS is out.



RennyKitty:
Hi RealVip,
It’s not that deep ma’am, so please relax and read reviews on websites like Quora and reddit where you will find reviews from other nationalities. Some of the things you would be paying for are your Visa fee, flight cost, accommodation in the first month even though your CoS ticks maintenance, all your test fees, and in some cases skill charge which is rightly supposed supposed to be paid by your employer depending on the number of years plus the CoS certificate that costs 199 pounds. This is totally different from MMM and it’s wrong for you to generalize and conclude a situation you haven’t been in. You might have gotten an all expense paid job, well good for you but do not over rule the fact that others could get legitimate jobs too yet be asked to pay for all. I have done interviews with white employers whose first question were “Cam you pay for your visa costs” before they proceeded to ask other questions. If anyone gets a legit tier 2job that requires them to pay for their trip costs then I think its safe to say go ahead and pay because these jobs don’t come that easily and except for jobs skills that require a higher level of education no employer wants to throw their money around bringing you in from your home country for jobs like SCW . Some employers might loan it to you and deduct if from your salary as you earn. Life is not a one way highway abeg. Google google google.

To others who are hoping to get Sponsored jobs too. Please let me share a few tips that might help.
1. Download the CV app and register duly and make every experience be it internship or volunteer jobs count. Also be very sure of the referees you will be using for your CV cos they will be contacted before you can be issued your offer letter when you eventually get the job. Also I would advise that you download a sample CV in your job field and follow the templates. Your CV matters a lot and is almost like the master key that will unlock every other doors Of your career progression.
2. After you have successfully built a good CV, good on Apps like Indeed, TotalJobs, Glassdoor and NHS websites and register. Then upload your CV. Some of these websites have assessments that you would be needing to complete and indeed even gives the option to write a cover letter. That’s like a golden opportunity to sell yourself. Please do notices that.
3. Now in order to avoid applying to multiple job openings that you are qualified for but can’t get because they don’t have Tier 2 sponsorship license. You can go to Gov.uk and check the lengthy list of licensed sponsors. Write the employers that fit in your field then go back to Indeed and the other apps and just input the names. It will for sure bring out available job openings and you start sending in your applications.
4. In my case I made it a point of duty at a point to apply to 10jobs in a day. Yes it was stressful and at some point I gave up and trust me that was when I got the call. Matter of fact I I did 2 interviews in one day and got the both jobs. At some point i felt I was wasting time and it seemed almost impossible considering my level of education and all even my sister told me to give up but God showed up.
5. While waiting you can get your Naric assessments ready as it lasts for a lifetime and you would need it for English proficiency or better still do IELTS exams. To avoid any form of delay after getting your CoS
You can also do your TB tests as people are finding it so difficult to book test dates and the result is Valid for just 6 months And of course except you lose focus you would have gotten a headway around the Job issue before the expiration. The only problem here is just that you would be needing a UK address while filling the form.
You will also be needing a police certificate but you can easily get that at Alagbon and you can’t apply for it pre employment because it is only valid for 3 months and
6. lastly and most importantly get your funds ready. A lot of these employers are not ready to pay for anything. They even see the CoS as a huge favor which sadly is in this part of the world. So you need to get your funds ready CoS agencies are “bombarding” them with applications but I think they just stretch out to select random applications here and there. So once they see you are dragging your matter, they move on to the next eligible candidate.
Let opportunities meet you prepared at all times. Especially since it’s Japa season and everyone is looking for a way to legitimately escape this Buhari’s wahala and secret achievements� Please I’m open to more hindsights as I still have a lot of people who want to try this visa route too.

Careful :

Not all professions require a Police Certificate.

Also the TB test is only valid for 6 months.

Dear Achmed,
Congratulations once again on your Visa and are you in the UK already? Please I would love to ask what IELTS score band is required for the Health and care Visa and in your case I assume you used Naric assessment, how were you able to pay for the Naric from Nigeria? And please if there’s anyone on here that has done CBT IELTS please can you shed more on light as in what to expect? Is it feasible considering all my computer literacy skill no pass on top phone and kindle and I would prefer the CBT test because of the faster result date. Please help

MOD do not offer CBT option for UKVI. You might want to confirm from British council as well so that you can rightly prepare your mind.

Hello, I do not know any employment agency for now but I’ll keep the thread posted as soon as I get any vital information in that regards but please be informed that you cannot switch to the Skilled worker Visa while on a visit visa. The only thing that can be done is to show up in person for the interviews and but on securing the job you will have to come back and apply from your home country. You cannot work on a visit visa.

Re: UK Skilled Worker Visa / Health And Care Worker Visa by dee1504: 2:47pm On Oct 24, 2021
Good afternoon everyone. Been following this thread from the beginning and I can say, it's a great initiative by Uzland. However, I would like to answer a few questions from some of us here. Before I do that, I would like to say that I have a job offer from an NHS Foundation Trust to work as a NEUROPHYSIOLOGIST, I'm currently awaiting CoS.

1. For anyone who desires to go the HAC visa route, like some people have rightly said, your journey should begin by getting a job. These can be found on the following sites:
uk.indeed.com (selects jobs with NHS tags cos they ALWAYS give CoS)
jobs.nhs.uk
put your preferred job role in the search box and knock yourself out with number of vacancies e.g Pharmacist, Physiologist, Psychologist, Radiographer, etc

2. To the person who studied ANATOMY, I can't categorically place you in a particular job role as I am not so familiar with where an Anatomist can work. However, I suggest searching for the keyword 'ANATOMY' and seeing what the search results bring forth. Also, you can check out the likes of 'Medical Rehabilitation' or 'Radiographer' to see if you fit in.

3. If you eventually find a job that fits you, ensure:
a. you have adequate knowledge and work experience in that field(YOU WILL BE RIGOROUSLY TESTED IN YOUR INTERVIEW!!!)
b. you read the Job Description and Person Specifications of that job. Try to find out how to apply for relevant professional registration for that job role (HCPC, AHCS, RCCP, GMC, NMC,etc). Just ensure that you're suitably qualified
c. APPLY! APPLY!! APPLY!!! for as many as possible until ONE clicks, cos that's all you need

4. You will receive a LOT of rejections. Don't let that dampen your spirit. A lot of times, its not because you are not qualified, it could be that there is someone equally or more qualified than you in the UK who they will rather give the job to than go through the stress of employing you from Nigeria.

5. As regards job agencies, I do not believe in nor endorse them but I won't castigate them either. What works for one may not work for the other. But when an agency is asking you to pay certain amounts of money to them, that's your cue to RUN!!!

I'll do my best to answer as many questions as time permits me.

Side Note: HAC visa has become relatively easy for Nurses (RN/RM and Bsc Nursing). I'll post the process to do this, as compiled by someone else, much later.

I remain your comrade in the JAPA struggle

Thank you very much,
I want to ask questions

When you search for a job like Social Worker and you see different openings, is there a place to let them know you're an international applicant THAT will require sponsorship? COS or immediately you get the job, it automatically comes with CoS

You applied, got the job and expecting COS or it's stated in the job description??


And also, for Jobs that's regulated in the UK, how do one go about it?
For my field, it's regulated, do I start applying to be part of the regulations before getting to UK, or I inform my employer or when I get there, I'll start the registration
Re: UK Skilled Worker Visa / Health And Care Worker Visa by realvip: 2:14pm On Oct 25, 2021
To the best of my knowledge, your current location, place of work and phone number in your CV will suggest to them where you are located at the time of application. If they decide to continue, it means they already know they'll sponsor. You can also subtly ask them during the first interview about sponsorship. Eg. How many years sponsorship do you usually give? Or besides international passport, is there any other documents that'll be required of me before getting sponsorship. Something like that.

From what I have read so far, you need an MPharm degree to practice, then you need to be a member of GPhC (UK Pharmacist Council) for you to work in the UK. If you have MPharm already, you can start applying while working on getting registered with the council. Who knows, you might just be lucky.

About the conversion exams, I don't have much information on that

There is an option in the application to let them know if you have a UK visa or not. That's how they will know if they need to sponsor you or not.

If the job is regulated, try to register with the regulatory body. Some organisations overlook it, some don't. That you're not registered with the regulatory body doesn't mean you can't apply. Apply for the job while also applying to the regulatory body. Best of luck

3. If you eventually find a job that fits you, ensure:
a. you have adequate knowledge and work experience in that field(YOU WILL BE RIGOROUSLY TESTED IN YOUR INTERVIEW!!!)
b. you read the Job Description and Person Specifications of that job. Try to find out how to apply for relevant professional registration for that job role (HCPC, AHCS, RCCP, GMC, NMC,etc). Just ensure that you're suitably qualified
c. APPLY! APPLY!! APPLY!!! for as many as possible until ONE clicks, cos that's all you need

4. You will receive a LOT of rejections. Don't let that dampen your spirit. A lot of times, its not because you are not qualified, it could be that there is someone equally or more qualified than you in the UK who they will rather give the job to than go through the stress of employing you from Nigeria.

5. As regards job agencies, I do not believe in nor endorse them but I won't castigate them either. What works for one may not work for the other. But when an agency is asking you to pay certain amounts of money to them, that's your cue to RUN!!!

I'll do my best to answer as many questions as time permits me.

Side Note: HAC visa has become relatively easy for Nurses (RN/RM and Bsc Nursing). I'll post the process to do this, as compiled by someone else, much later.

I remain your comrade in the JAPA struggle

It's not about your course of study but what you have to offer. Biochemistry is a very wide field of study so you need to be specific about what you do exactly and check if there are jobs in the UK looking for applicants that do what you do.

I can't decide for you what Msc course to do. All you need to do is to check which one is in high demand, then make your choice. I can only advise that you look into taking a relevant Msc in UK which will boost your chances.

Yes.
If it is necessary for the main applicant then it is also necessary for the dependant.

Pls, how can one get Nvq3 certification? Can anyone who dosnt have a health / medical background get nvq3?

Thanks
Clarine:
Kindly note that only Senior Health care Assistants are been sponsored. HCA is not a skilled job. It required nothing. That is why only senior carers are sponsored. This is just one occupation under this visa route. Physiotherapy and other health Care workers can apply. For you to get a job as a senior Carer, you will need to have NVQ3 at least and get a job.

Hello gurus,
Please pardon me if my question appears trivial.
I'd like to know how this TLS booking works. After completing the online visa application and making payment, are you automatically scheduled for the next available date/time or you are at liberty to pick a preferred appointment date (subject to availability of course)?

Also for the NARIC proof of English proficiency, is the e-statement acceptable or I must wait for the original certificate to be delivered first?

Thanks for responding.

You are at liberty to pick your preferred date subject to availability ( Also note that you have the standard/regular, Priority and super priority or so).

The e-statement if fine. Your result also has a unique reference number which you will also provide for your application. This number could be used to check the authenticity.
