Getting your UK work visa can be easy

Moving overseas can be a pretty daunting idea for some, but it doesn’t actually need to be hard. You just need to make sure all the things on your checklist are taken care of: from which clothes to pack and take with you, sorting out your passport, what to do with the rest of your belongings, and making sure you have the correct visa to enter the UK for work.

While most of those things are pretty standard and straight forward, none (other than your passport) are quite so important as having you UK visa application Australia in and approved. It’s important to know what the requirements are for you to secure a UK work visa, and which one you are eligible for. It’s vital to have this locked away before you get to start packing your suitcase.

So, where do you start? To begin with, it helps knowing which UK visas are available to Australian and New Zealand professionals, and what each one allows or restricts you to do.

The UK youth mobility scheme visa is suited to professional contractors aged between 18 and 30 years (inclusive). The Tier 5 visa allows you to live and work in the UK for up to two years, leaving you free to exit and enter back into the UK at any time during the two years when your visa is valid. There are a few small restrictions on this visa, one of them being that you cannot extend your stay once it expires. You also can’t be granted and use this visa more than once, and must provide proof of funds available to help support you until you secure employment.

The UK ancestry visa information is applicable to those Australians or New Zealanders who have a grandparent (or parent) that was born in the UK. Similarly to the Tier 5, you will be required to demonstrate your intention to work in the UK and evidence of funds that will prove you can support yourself upon entry, until you’ve secured employment. This visa however is valid for five years, and unlike the Tier 5, you can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) at the conclusion of this five year period, which if approved would allow you to stay longer than the original visa term.

At myOE, we know all about UK visas and can assist you with your application for a UK work permits. We provide free support and advice on your tier 5 visa for UK eligibility, as well as setting up other things you will need once you leave – such as a National Insurance number, UK bank account, and how to reformat your resume for the UK market.

Calling all contractors – the UK needs you!!

Contracting in the UK is now at a 40-year high, with demand and agency figures far exceeding the UK permanent recruitment sector. Throw in the fact that pay rates have increased to a seven-year high and contractor availability falling, and you have market conditions that couldn’t be more perfect to be contracting in the UK.

The latest Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) report on the job market also highlights that IT and financial contracting were the highest performing of the core contracting disciplines during September 2014.

According to the REC chief executive Kevin Green, although permanent hiring growth has slowed to a ten-month low, September still saw further growth in demand for both contractors and employees.

“Once again more people have secured permanent and temporary jobs via recruiters than in the previous month, a sign of the continued strength of the UK’s labour market. The increasing lack of candidates continues to be a worry as shortages spread across more industries,” he said.

Contractor Calculator CEO Dave Chaplin notes that clients are increasingly turning to contractors to fill talent and skills gaps.

“As the economic recovery gathers pace and UK businesses invest in launching new projects, there just aren’t enough skilled employees available. That means clients are using the contract market to source these hard to find skills that are essential for growth,” Mr Chaplin said.

“Hourly pay for people on temporary contracts has risen at the fastest pace for nearly seven years, which shows that employers are bringing in temps and contractors with the skills they need quickly and are willing to pay to do so,” Mr Green adds.

So it really is the time to bring your skills and sense of adventure over to the UK, and take your pick from all the exciting new opportunities there are available for you here.

Get in touch with myOE and let us assist you with your plans, starting off with getting your tier 5 visa UK. There really is no time like the present!

MYOE – How to apply for a UK visa

If you’re taking your skills as a professional contractor overseas to the UK, there are a few things it is necessary to consider and prepare first. Among what is arguably the most important of these is having your UK visa properly sorted before you take off.

As with most things travel-related, applying for this important documentation can be tedious if you’re not across what options there are and what you are eligible for. If you are not fortunate enough to have a British passport, there are still a few UK visa options you can enter the UK on. The most common of these are Ancestry, Spousal or the Tier 5 visas.

The British ancestry Visa is available to Australian or New Zealand citizens who can prove one of their grandparents was born in the UK, which includes Southern Ireland prior to 31 March 1922.

The Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme visa is a great option for Australian and New Zealanders aged between 18 and 30. For those who want to work and travel in the UK, this visa can be applied for up until their 31st birthday as long as you have no dependents. The tier 5 visa is the quickest and cheapest visa available that would allow the approved applicant to work in the UK for up to two years.

Rather than sorting through the often tedious visa application process on your own, why not take advantage of the valuable assistance myOE offers? As part of its service, myOE can help facilitate your visa application, doing all the hard work for you.

To apply with the help of myOE, visit the myOE website and click on work visa UK. Once payment has been made, you will be introduced to our Partnered Company where a case worker will be assigned to work through your application, all this coming with a guarantee of approval. The non-refundable British Government fee is only payable at the time of lodgement. With an average turnaround time on this visa of four weeks, this is by far the easiest and quickest way to ensure your application is completed and lodged correctly, to the best of your benefit.

Contractor boom continues in UK – myOE

Financial, finance and accounting, and IT contractors are facing a massive hiring boom in the second half of 2014, with 44 per cent of major contractor clients planning to increase contract and permanent headcounts.

This is according to the latest professional index from Robert Half UK. It highlights that skilled professionals are in increasingly short supply, particularly those with niche skills. Half of the C-Suite hiring manager’s surveyed said finding candidates with the right skills is “very challenging”.

According to Contractor Calculator CEO Dave Chaplin, this ‘perfect storm’ of rapidly increasing demand alongside candidate and skills supply shortages is the ideal time for permanent employees who are feeling the itch to make the leap into contracting.

“If you have the niche technical and compliance skills that are shown to be in such short supply and high demand, then now is the time to consider a contracting career.

“Skills shortages also mean you’ll be likely to enter your first contract on a really good rate of pay,” he said.
