EU and global environmental targets are fuelling a demand for skilled environment professionals able to develop and implement corporate environmental strategies – and ensure that companies focus on sustainable business solutions to comply with legislation and protect the environment.


Because of the current demand for skilled and experienced environment professionals in UK companies and organisations, recruiting candidates from overseas can be crucial to maintaining environmentally sound corporate decision-making.

Duncan Lewis business immigration lawyers frequently advise private and public sector businesses and organisations on Skilled Worker (formerly known as Tier 2) applications – as well as advising on recruiting recent overseas graduates who have qualified in environmental studies in the UK.


Any Skilled Worker (formerly known as Tier 2) applicants can be sponsored for jobs in certain occupations – and the government has drawn up a list of eligible occupations for environment professionals wishing to apply for a Skilled Worker (formerly known as Tier 2) visa to take up a position in the UK.
