Hello folks , hope this post provides much of the information that your are in need off. This post talks for Tier-4 dependents. Tier-4 dependents are elgible to work in UK as long their Spouse/Partner has the right to work atleast for 20 hours per week stamped in their Visa. Also the Spouse/Partner must have Visa for more than 12 months. You can work fulltime anywhere in UK and you do not need any sponsorship from the employer. For skilled workers you can start applying for jobs online by providing your details in CV and covering letter. Never hesitate to mention your situation in covering letter and make it clear that you are into Tier-4 dependent. Many of the recruiter does not have much knowledge of Tier-4 dependent visa as they are mostly aware of Tier-2 sponsorship. Always highlight to the recruiters that you do not need any sponsorship from employers. Before you start applying for the jobs it is always recommend to register for National Insurance number. All you have to do is make a call to the National Insurance call center and provide your full name as in your Passport with your current residence in UK. A week later you may get some documents to fill in up through Post and you are expected to return back with a photocopy of your passport and visa stamping. It is not necessary to have National Insurance and apply for the job, you can mention to your recruiter that you have applied for it. But try to get one ASAP. Few tips on searching for Jobs. Most of recruiters would look for permanent position, as you may visa for limited period of time it is always recommended to apply contract/ temporary positions. All the best. Hope you find this post an useful one.
