Rights as a Tier 2 applicant?

Post by aneelgill » Wed Sep 30, 2020 11:18 am

Hi all,

I recently received a job offer at a healthcare service as an Assistant Psychologist. I currently hold a valid Tier 4 visa and would need to convert this to a Tier 2 visa. This is expected to be relatively smooth as I meet all the criteria required and I also am applying within the UK. My soon-to-be employers have were made aware of this since the first interview stage. However, yesterday when I was supposed to formally sign my contract, they called me earlier in the morning telling me they have to withdraw their offer because they cannot accept internationals.

As you all can imagine how unfair this must be, I'm just wondering what rights do I have? Especially since they are on the current list of registered sponsors for tier 2 visas on the Home Office's official website, so I don't understand what is preventing them from proceeding with my application?

Thank you

None really. A sponsor can withdraw their offer for any reason if they choose to.

Also not sure if 'assistant psychologist' qualifies for sponsorship.
