A preferred supplier list is operated in the UK.

Right to Work in the UK

The UK Government has taken steps to reduce net migration to the UK by limiting the number of overseas workers from outside the EEA coming to the UK for employment. Consequently, whilst we are able to consider applications from overseas workers from outside the EEA (who require a Tier 2 General Visa) we can only employ them if we can provide evidence that there are no other suitable candidates available from inside the EEA. Therefore all Non-UK/EEA nationals’ applications will be kept on hold until we have pursued all candidates who currently have the right to work in the UK.
