I have verified with my employer and got to know that my employer is “qualifying company” and have applied many in SOC before. Will my case fit then in SOC SOL?CR001 wrote: ↑Wed May 23, 2018 11:42 amI don't believe the NHS is a 'qualifying company'. Qualifying company does not mean an approved sponsor by the way so you are likely not on a shortage occupation SOC under 2136.

My employer is a a 'qualifying company' (NHS) and my job description includes 'demonstrable experience of having a lead a team'.
RLMT would NOT be needed if the SOC was SOL.-> This is confusing as my employer did RLMT to apply for RCos.
Could you please guide me to know the exact application way (SOC/non SOC) in my case?
As this is their first experience, I need to dig in to get more details around it.

(i) is licensed as a sponsor for the purposes of Tier 2 of the Points Based System,
(ii) at the time of obtaining such permission, employs between 20 and 250 employees (inclusive), or employs fewer than 20 employees and has provided a letter from the Department for International Trade, confirming that the Department has been working with the company and supports the application in relation to its trade or investment activity,
(iii) is not more than 25% owned by a company which has one or more other establishments in the UK and one of those establishments employs more than 250 employees; and
(iv) has not been established in the UK for the purpose of supplying services exclusively to a single company or company group in the UK; and
