Why it’s time for an MBA visa

With the UK Chancellor’s budget announcement tomorrow, many UK businesses will be hoping for some good news on the recruitment front to help alleviate current skills shortages across a range of industries. They are likely to get short shrift. The Government has repeatedly pushed back on requests for sector specific carve-outs to deal with post-Brexit recruitment blocks.

Tech Nation Global Talent applications – How to sell yourself in 1000 words

Many a brilliant person may find it difficult to confidently respond when asked ‘what makes you special’? There are a lot of reasons why extolling your strengths may not come naturally. One reason might be ‘imposter syndrome’, when people feel they are not good enough or worthy of their position. Studies show that imposter syndrome is something experienced by the majority of people at some point and also felt disproportionately by women and people of colour.

Global Talent visa to replace Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) scheme

In a welcome move, Boris Johnson recently announced the potential for a new Global Talent visa for those with skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.  This follows hot on the heels of his other recent announcements in relation to asking the Migration Advisory Committee to look at whether the UK should adopt an Australian style Points Based System.
