Want to recruit a non EU candidate? We can help.

Are you thinking about bringing in a non-EU candidate to fill one of your roles?  Did you know Wired Sussex can help you obtain a Tech Visa Waiver as we are members of Tech City UK?

The Exceptional Talent Visa (one of the Tier 1 visa routes) is a dedicated, fast-track visa route for applications from highly skilled tech workers from overseas.

In April 2014, Tech City UK became an official adviser to the Home Office on applications for the Exceptional Talent visa. That means they can endorse applicants for this visa route as we are a Designated Competent Body (DCB), like The Arts Council (for arts and culture applications), The British Academy (for humanities and social science), and The Royal Academy of Engineering (for engineering).

There is a two-stage process to this route, and both are done via the Home Office.

Please note that the bar is very high for Exceptional Talent visa applicants (specific requirements are described here)

There is some more information from Tech City here but please drop me a line if you want to talk about it more, or 01273 692888.
