Tier 2 second job

Post by aserff » Fri Sep 20, 2019 12:28 pm

Hi guys,

I am a tier 2 holder working as a Software Engineer for 37.5 hours a week.

my question is :

1. can I take second job up to 20 hours/ week, in the evenings and weekends?

2. do I need to notify my main sponsor?

3. if I signed contract with my 2nd employer for 20 hours a week, money paid through bank and payslips provided, is it enough to prove my
extra money and tax is coming from 2nd employer, I don’t wanna mess up with the IlR application.
4. when I extend visa tier 2 or ILR how do I explain the situation to home office?

Thank you

For ILR, your second job is not taken into consideration at all. The ILR salary requirement you must meet is only the income from your tier 2 sponsor.

Nothing you need to explain to HO either.

Do I need to notify my current sponsor? and also when I do ILR or extend visa tier 2, do I need to submit documents relating my 2nd employment (payslips, contract)?

1. Page 54 in the guidance notes clearly explains that you do not have to inform your sponsor.

2. Your second/supplementary job is irrelevant to extension or ILR. It does not count and there is nothing you need to submit.

3. Very important to note that you cannot work at your second/supplementary job if you are on annual leave from your sponsor as during this time it is still your sponsors time, i.e. normal working hours.
