Our intelligent eligibility checker helps you understand whether a particular job and applicant are eligible for sponsorship via the UK’s Skilled Worker immigration route
We do this by asking you a few questions about the job and the applicant’s profile – it takes less than 5 minutes... We then check your answers against the requirements of the Skilled Worker route
Below are the main requirements, and what we'll do to help you find out if you meet each of them
The role must meet the skill level requirement
You search for the job title – we’ll tell you whether it meets the requirement
The role must pay a minimum salary
We ask you a few questions about yourself and the job and give you an exact minimum salary (we'll also tell you what the minimum salary would be in different circumstances)
You must gain enough points in the UK’s ‘Points Based System’
Using what you tell us about yourself, we assess how many points you would get and whether you qualify
You will need an offer of skilled work from a Licensed Sponsor
Although we can’t find you a sponsor, we can help you understand how the Sponsorship system works and how to communicate this to a prospective employer – this may help you convince an employer to sponsor you
