Employing Overseas Nurses

As an employer looking to recruit overseas nurses (Non EU), there are a series of steps for a sponsor to follow to bring a candidate successfully into the UK.

A few points the employer should be mindful of:

  • The Nurses eligibility to meet the New NMC requirements (part 1 & 2) as well as their work and immigration history.
  • UKVI immigration requirements including T2 sponsor requirements & responsibilities.
  • Visa & health fees at the British Embassy.
  • Nurse’s visa lodging documents and application
  • If the nurse is in the Philippines, the POEA requirements and associated costs.

Since 2002, Job Connections UK has been the effective co-ordinator of many successful placements. We manage the process between the Home Office (visa processing), employers and employees. To date, we have helped place over 2,000 overseas nurses into healthcare vacancies.

As your placement coordinator, our services include:

• Providing you with suitable overseas nurses to fill your vacancies – when you cannot find a UK/EU resident to fill these vacancies

• Providing visa preparation services to employees you employ through us, to ensure that they are legally permitted to work for you, so you do not have to worry about their immigration status

• Providing comprehensive immigration advice that also covers the Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) for employers recruiting overseas staff nurses, giving you peace of mind over what can be a complex process

• Providing you with all the relevant employment documentation you need for your successful overseas nurse, so you do not have to worry about burdensome bureaucratic procedures
