Managers and Directors in Transport and Distribution

Duncan Lewis Business Immigration Solicitors – Managers and Directors in Transport and Distribution – UK Visa Applications

 

The transport and distribution sector in the UK has expanded as result of the global market – meaning UK companies need to hire the most experienced managers and directors in transport and distribution to compete with rivals at home and abroad.

 

International recruitment is often a necessity to meet recruitment targets for experts in transport and logistics – but Tier 2 visa restrictions can prove a challenge to hiring skilled managers and directors in transport and distribution from non-EEA countries.

 

With nearly 200,000 transport and distribution companies in Britain employing more than two million people, overcoming restrictions on Tier 2 visas is vital.

 

Duncan Lewis business immigration solicitors can advise companies on overseas recruitment of managers and directors in transport and distribution, who are eligible to work in the UK under the regulations covering occupations skilled to NQF Level 6.

 

Duncan Lewis business immigration lawyers frequently advise companies on Tier 2 applications – as well as advising on recruiting recent overseas graduates who have qualified or trained in the UK.

 

Any Tier 2 applicants can be sponsored for jobs in certain occupations – and the government has drawn up a list of eligible occupations for managers and directors in transport and distribution wishing to apply for a Tier 2 visa to take up a position in the UK.

 

UK Visas & Immigration regulations set out in the Codes of Practice for Skilled Workers such as managers and directors in transport and distribution. Under the regulations, the sort of roles within a company that would be eligible for a Tier 2 visa application include:
 

  • Fleet manager
  • Transport manager.

 

UK Visas & Immigration rules also set out the types of duties managers and directors in transport and distribution might undertake to qualify for a Tier 2 visa, including:

 

  • plans the optimum utilisation of staff and operating equipment – and co-ordinates maintenance activities to ensure least possible disruption to services
  • examines traffic reports, load patterns, traffic receipts and other data and revises transport services or freight rates accordingly
  • directs the movement, handling and storage of freight in transit – and reviews space utilisation, staffing and distribution expenditure to determine future distribution policies
  • ensures that regulations regarding hours of work, the licensing of crews and transport equipment, the operational safety and efficiency of equipment, the insurance of vehicles and other statutory regulations are complied with
  • ensures that harbour channels and berths are maintained and liaises with ship owners, crew, customs officials, dock and harbour staff to arrange entry, berthing and servicing of ships
  • supervises day-to-day activities in a railway station
  • arranges for maintenance of airport runways and buildings, liaises with fuel and catering crews to ensure adequate supplies – and resolves any complaints and problems raised by airport users.

 

The current minimum salary range for managers and directors in transport and distribution applying for a Tier 2 UK visa would be £27,600 for an experienced member of staff – and £21,600 for a new entrant.
