Many people would like to relocate to the United Kingdom but without a job with a sponsored work visa this is not possible. 

The country is a favoured destination for skilled workers and anyone looking to live and work in a safe environment with good public services.


Here is a list of companies in Britain that are known to hire international jobseekers, and will sponsor permits for suitable candidates from outside of the UK.

According to Newsnowgh, the Top 10 companies known to sponsor visas for international job-seekers include:

  • Deloitte Accounting and Professional Services UK
  • Tesla Motors Limited
  • PwC Accounting and Professional Services UK
  • Uber
  • Rolls-Royce
  • Amazon UK
  • Vodafone
  • British Airways
  • HSBC
  • Astra Zeneca


The United Kingdom offers sponsored visas for job-seekers from other countries. The Tier 2(General Visa) allows job seekers to remain in the country for up to 5 years as non-residents.

However, applicants for this permit must have job offers from companies willing to sponsor employees.

To qualify for a Tier 2 Visa in the UK, you need :

  • Certificate of Sponsorship from a UK employer.
  • A minimum of 70 points (to be eligible on the Points-based System based on credentials, financial potential and proficiency in English).
  • Hold sufficient funds to sustain oneself without access to public resources.

In recent years the United Kingdom has seen high flows of legal migration, which has led to public discontent.

The UK government has announced that it will clamp down on the number of legal migrants it allows into the country from next year.


However, the United Kingdom will still need professionals from other countries. Since leaving the European Union (EU) the country no longer has the labour flows from Europe that it previously had.

This has resulted in labour shortages in several key areas. The country now has to recruit workers from countries outside of the UK, providing them with work permits.
