If you’re considering or planning a relocation to London, then it makes sense that you should have some kind of steady income to support yourself. If that’s the case, you’re probably going to need a working visa, as is required by most all relocation jobs. A few things to remember for your relocation jobs requirements, should that be the case for you.

First of all relocating obviously implies that you’re looking at something pretty long-term in terms of relocation jobs and employment.

That leaves two categories that you’ll need to qualify for in order to work in London (and the UK in general): High value immigrants and Skilled Workers (they are otherwise referred to as Tier 1 and Tier 2).

To qualify for Tier 1 or the High Value category, you’ll have to be recognised as exceptionally talented in terms of contributions to society such as the arts and the sciences. Also falling under this category are entrepreneurs, investors and students seeking employment following their graduation from a UK university.

Tier 2 (Skilled Workers) generally applies to people who already have a job secured for them. You’ll be required to show proof of this employment for official purposes. This category also applies to people who are ministers of a religion and establish sportspersons like coaches and players who can make a significant contribution to their particular fields as well as those working for multinational companies being transferred to the UK or in the process of relocation to London while working thier relocation jobs.

Unless you’re one of the exceptional few whose contribution to society is so inarguable that you qualify without a second thought to the Tier 1 group, it’s more likely that you’ll be in the Tier 2 category. In that case, you’ll have to be very certain of being employed once you reach the UK. If you don’t know who it is employing you personally, do background checks and otherwise ask around to have an idea of how things will go once you have completed your relocation. In addition, bear in mind that an employer would have to prove that they could find a UK person to fill the position you were hired for, another possible obstacle to your efforts.

If you’re intent on relocation to London, and have a job,  it’s a good idea to keep all this in mind.
