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 the role is sponsorable and, if it is, whether it meets the minimum salary required for the individual to gain this visa. 

Guidance on the following pages has been developed for those with recruitment responsibilities to assist you in determining the above, 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.

  1. Find the appropriate category.
  1. Check the example job titles.

For each job role, you will find guidance on the various options for minimum salary for the SOC code, including where 'tradeable' salary points are available.

Where a role cannot meet the minimum salary requirements, then sponsorship via the Skilled Worker visa route will not be possible.
