Navigating the Right to Work in the UK: Essential Insights

​At Hunter Gatherer Mental Health, our commitment to excellence begins with ensuring all our candidates have the legal right to work in the UK. Understanding the complexities of visa requirements can be daunting, but we're here to make this process as straightforward as possible for those considering a move to the UK.

For EU, EEA, and Swiss Citizens

If you were residing in the UK by the 31st of December, 2020, there's a chance you might be eligible for the EU Settlement Scheme, which is a cost-free alternative to the standard visa application. Although the official application deadline was on the 30th of June, 2021, late applications are still being considered if there are reasonable grounds for the delay. It's essential to note that this scheme is only accessible to those applying with a valid passport or national identity card equipped with a biometric chip. Check if you're eligible here.

Do You Need a Visa?

Figuring out whether you need a visa is the first step for anyone looking to work, study, or live in the UK. Your need for a visa hinges on various factors, including your nationality, the purpose of your stay, and the duration of your visit. The UK government's website provides a handy tool to help check your visa requirements and start your application process.

Applying for a UK Visa

Whether you're planning to study, work, or join family in the UK, the type of visa you'll need varies based on your personal circumstances, country of origin, and professional skills. Specifically, for those looking to work in the UK, there are numerous work visa categories, each tailored to different professional qualifications, job offers, and intended activities in the UK.

From short-term assignments to long-term employment opportunities, understanding which work visa best suits your situation is crucial. The UK government's official site offers comprehensive guidance on the various work visas, including eligibility criteria and application instructions.

We are dedicated to supporting our candidates through every step of their career journey, starting with the critical aspect of work eligibility in the UK.
