Following the UK leaving the EU, the new skilled worker visa points system has been designed for EU and non-EU residents to ensure only workers who can build enough points for a visa to be issued can work in the UK. This vacancy does not meet the points requirement for a skilled worker visa to be issued, nor is it a vacancy on the shortage occupations list therefore anyone applying who does not have the right to work in the UK currently will not be progressed. If you believe this is a mistake, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
