HOW TO FIND TIER 2 JOBS THAT PAY £35,000
This PDF document is a list of ‘Registered Sponsors Licensed Under the Points-Based System’, which basically means it is a list of companies and organisations who can hire Tier 2 (and Tier 5) migrants.
It is worth noting that some companies on the list no longer provide sponsorships but are still unaccountably included on the list. Likewise, some companies that provide Tier 2 certificates of sponsorship do not appear on the list.
It is worth contacting each of these companies directly to ask them about vacancies.
It is also absolutely worth applying for jobs that you find around the internet. Some companies explain in the advert, or on their own website, whether they will provide certificates of sponsorship. If they do not mention it anywhere then it is worth inquiring after it in your first communication with the potential employer, to avoid spending time on an unproductive application.
There are some things that employers must do regarding Tier 2 applicants, and there are some things that they are absolutely forbidden from doing. This PDF lays out the Government’s guidelines for avoiding unlawful discrimination, but the specific paragraph relevant to Tier 2 skilled workers is on page 7:
Job applicants should not be treated less favourably if they produce acceptable documents showing a time-limited right to work in the UK. Once a person who has time-limited permission to stay in the UK has established their initial and on-going entitlement to work, they should not be treated less favourably during their employment, including the terms of their employment, opportunities for training, promotion or transfer, benefits, facilities or services, or by dismissing the worker or subjecting them to some other detriment, other than further right to work checks as prescribed in the guidance and ‘Code of practice on preventing illegal working: civil penalty scheme for employers’.
