Juan,

Thanks for the advice. I hope that everything works out for you. I would like to add though, that your visa should still be valid and you can continue to apply for jobs from ecuador if you still want to. Might get something interesting!

What about summer and after when fresh graduates enter the job market? Wouldn't that have some impact on one's chances of getting a job?

ILR - eligibility to work in the EU?

Can someone with ILR in the UK work in the rest of the EU too? Without having to apply for work permits in the other EU countries?

Thanks Nshar1. Yes, that's a great idea. We should compile a list of good and unscrupulous agents here.

I retract that. It's against the rules.

Not sure which stage it's at - all I have is a reference number and no correspondence yet. When you sent your fax, who did you ad...

call up the HO and ask them to check whether your application is in their system already and ask your bank to notify you immediately when the payment has been charged. then follow-up with both.

How do you know who your case worker is?

Hi,

I checked out MBE Sheffield's website for the courier collection of the documents and realized that the case worker's name and extension number are required.

How and when do we get these details?

Thanks!

thanks, that's a relief. my HR simply used the general company stamp and signed it without including the designation and name of the person signing it. I was going to add it myself but there isn't much space left.

Wage slips signed and stamped?

Hi,

I was wondering if it's simply a signature and the general company stamp? Or should it be a specific stamp for example a HR department stamp? Should there also be the person's designation and name?
