Permission to work

Refugees have full permission to work in the UK in any profession at all skill levels. They are issued a Visa by the Home Office and a National Insurance number.

All our candidates are graduates and professionals with up to 25 years of relevant Engineering, Architecture and/or Business Services experience. They have overseas Degrees and Masters qualifications that are approved to be UK equivalent by NARIC and/or UK professional bodies. And around 40% of our candidates have qualified again in the UK with additional Degrees and Masters qualifications. Yet, without UK experience, finding a job is difficult. That's why we exist.

We screen our candidates thoroughly. We guide candidates to map their skills and screening tests select candidates with advanced business English skills. Of course, we ensure that all candidates have a refugee Biometric Residence Card, issued by the Home Office.

My CEO asked how I had managed to secure such a competent and well experienced candidate for the role. A graduate engineer, experience on steam systems, knowledge of Delta (a competitor technology), hands on capabilities to run the machine shop work, as well as CAD and solid works experience so he could develop his role elsewhere in the business in time. He's a perfect fit - it's been too good to be true!
