Your prospective employer will only contact those people whose details you have provided and nothing more. Also, from what I know, for standard jobs in the IT sector, companies, big and small, do standard checks such as bankruptcy, criminal records etc - many dont even contact your employer. The com...

From all I have read on this forum, they only want to ensure the couple live together and submitting a few well selected letters spanning 2 years or a lot of letters dont make any difference. Also not that if you have been living and travelling together, most entry and exit stamps in the passport pl...

In the UK, they dont stamp on exit - its well known but many realize this only when they actually sit and look at their passports - so this is never going to be an issue. They only stamp when you enter after standing in those long queues! As you exit the UK, wherever you go, the country you enter wi...

Thanks Sush, This is precisely what I intend to do. The proof I will be using for past 12 months earnings assessment and claiming points are 1. P60 for 2010-11 Apr to March with one month being unemployed 2. Bank statements for those 12 months These are from 2 separate sources so should suffice. Car...

Wonder how the govt can allow such companies to be legal??? From what you have said, its pretty clear 1. No bench period. They will only wait for 3 months from the date they issue the WP. 2. If in 3 months, either you dont find work and start, or they cant find work for you, your WP will be cancelle...

Just be careful of one point - once you have a Tier 2 from them, then whether they help you to find work or not, they do not lose. This is because, as they stated, you get no money when you are idle, and when you do work then they get a 25% cut. Also note that they say they will find a contract for ...

You have to write what your latest and current salary is at the point of making the application. So you just state what you receive now - no one asks what you received 3 or 6 or 9 months back - just your current salary

You need to provide anything that clearly states you were employed by the named employer during the period of your Work Permit. A generic employment letter stating you are/were working for them or your P60 is more than enough really. Bank statement too will suffice provided it shows the company's na...

One more question I did have for you - for proofs such as 1. Employment reference letter 2. Previous employment letters, if any 3. Latest bills etc For all of the above, there is no specific mention that these must not be older than 1 month. I am sorting all my papers now but applying 2nd week of Ju...

Thoughts on Cardiff PEO?

Hi All, Many posts on here talk of 2 PEO offices - Croydon and Solihull. While we can go to either, the one at Cardiff is easy access to us and wanted to know from others about their experience at the Cardiff PEO? Our case is almost straightforward. I have 185 days outside UK over 5 years all of whi...

Legally you are not supposed to do a full time Masters. Part time, executive and distance learning are allowed but usually at international rates. Many colleges do look at your case if you make a request. This is because few colleges only require you to be resident in the UK to qualify for local fee...

So a few things you need to be clear of at the outset 1. Consultants do usually manage the entire process until the point you get the offer letter. After that, you will have official contact points within the company 2. Companies do tend to send all correspondence via the Consultant but in the end, ...
