You must score at least 50 points in this category. You can score points under three criteria . These are:
  • sponsorship;
  • qualifications; and
  • prospective earnings.

Resident labour market test
If your job is not on the shortage occupation list, your job offer will need to pass the resident labour market test. This test ensures that resident workers have had the opportunity to apply for the job before it is filled under Tier 2.

To apply under Tier 2 - skilled worker you will require a valid certificate of sponsorship issued by one of our licensed sponsors. You can score up to 50 points for your certificate of sponsorship. More information about how sponsors can become licensed can be obtained from our site under the employers section or alternatively by contacting our experts on 0208 871 0816.

If you want to come to the United Kingdom under Tier 2 - skilled worker your potential employer will only issue a certificate of sponsorship if you:
  • are filling a vacancy that requires a worker with skills at NVQ level 3 or above;
  • will comply with the conditions of your permission to stay and leave the United Kingdom when your leave expires.
If you have a certificate of sponsorship for a job on a shortage occupation list you will be awarded 50 points.

If you have a certificate of sponsorship for a job not covered by the shortage occupation list, your job will have passed the resident labour market test and you will be awarded 30 points.

You can score up to 15 points for your qualifications. Points will be awarded in the following way:

Qualifications Points awarded
