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
