Looking to work in the UK?

At Move Up, we understand the challenges South Africans face when seeking employment and visa assistance in the UK. With hundreds of CV’s flooding in from foreigners around the globe, UK employers can be overwhelmed and difficult to approach. That’s why we’ve created a recruitment division to help bridge the gap and connect South Africans with UK employers offering visa sponsorship.

Our recruitment division specializes in advertising active job opportunities available with UK firms and can assist in the job hunting process. We also provide helpful resources such as “How to Get a UK Job Offer” and “Once You Get a UK Job Offer” to guide South Africans through the process.

In addition to job hunting, we also specialize in helping South Africans navigate the UK’s work permit system. Since the 2008 recession, the UK government has implemented a point-based system that requires employers to register and request a unique certificate for each role they sponsor. This can be administratively challenging for both South Africans and UK employers.

At Move Up, we take care of the immigration process and help South Africans obtain the necessary permission to pass through the UK’s border. We can assist with a variety of visa options such as the Ancestry Visa, Settlement Visa, EEA Family Permit, Skilled Worker visa, and Student visa.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the research and requirements, let us do the worrying for you. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you navigate the next qualifying hurdles and achieve your goal of working in the UK.
