Tier 2 visa dependent Job search

Post by opaitbaba » Thu Oct 26, 2017 11:18 pm

Hello all,

My wife is my tier 2 visa dependent, we have been in the UK for about 3months and it has been really hard for her to get a job, she has applied for a lot of jobs that are below graduate level yet she gets turned down.
Any advice on how a tier 2 dependent can easily get a job would be highly appreciated.
Thank you :D

Copies of CV and pound the pavements going to agencies.

Lower her expectation on jobs.

Impossible to guess why she is not getting anywhere as we dont know her experience or what types of jobs she is applying for. "Under graduate level" is VERY vague.

Her being a Tier 2 dependant has no relevance to nor any bearing on her employment prospects.
I do not give immigration advice. I refer you to Immigration Rules, guidance, other online content and to your sponsor.

She should try admin type roles and get out and go and see or make appointments with Agencies to get into a temp role even as a start so that she can build some experience in the UK and improve her CV.
