Where recruiting into any given role at the University, and where a Skilled Worker Visa (SWV) is required for a non-UK national filling that role, you must assess whether that role can meet the minimum salary requirements required for the individual to gain this visa. 

This guidance document has been developed for those with recruitment responsibilities to assist you in determining if any given role can meet the SWV minimum salary requirements, taking into account all the possible ways that any given role could benefit from the 'tradeable' salary characteristics of the Skilled Worker Visa salary rules, where applicable.

If a role is not mentioned on this list, or if you are unsure of the eligibility of any given role, please contact the HR Compliance Team for verification.
