Working in the UK

(in association with our partners at

Who can and who can't work and live in the UK?

Permanent Residents of the UK and British and European Nationals [EEA] do not need to apply for the right to work in the UK. Mostly all others will need to ensure that they have this right to work, study or live in the UK and there are many ways in which this can be achieved. The key issue for you is that you know your status and can obtain this right as quickly and certainly as possible.

The most common way to obtain this right to work is by obtaining one of the many types of work permit or permit free employment available. These include permits for those who have been offered a job ; for those who have not had such an offer but are of a highly skilled and experienced nature ; those who are British Commonwealth citizens under 31 years old ; those working as Ministers of Religion, for International Press, as Postgraduate Doctors or Dentists, Overseas Governments and many more.

There are many other ways to enable you to legally live and work in the UK including those who have UK or EU partners, those who may have British or Irish Ancestry and others.

It is a common fact that too many opportunities are lost due to lack of awareness of your options.

Employers and Recruiters miss out on ther people they need and Candidates miss out on their ideal job because of lack of information and help. It is also a fact that these opportunities are sometimes avoided because it is felt that too much extra work and admin is required to make it happen. Actually, all it takes is an email or a phone call to give you an idea about such matters and after that, there is either little or no extra work. That is what our partners at SkillClear do for you.
