Marketing and sales appointments at senior level frequently involve the international recruitment of experienced marketing and sales directors – which can be a challenge to UK-based companies because of Tier 2 visa restrictions in the UK.

Duncan Lewis business immigration solicitors can advise companies on overseas recruitment of marketing and sales directors, 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 on international recruitment and Tier 2 applications – as well as advising on recruiting recent overseas graduates who have qualified in sales and marketing 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 marketing and sales directors 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 sales directors and marketing directors.

  • liaises with other senior staff to determine the range of goods or services to be sold
  • discusses employers’ or clients’ requirements, plans and monitors surveys and analyses of customers’ reactions to products
  • examines and analyses sales figures, advises on and monitors marketing campaigns and promotional activities
  • controls the recruitment and training of staff
  • produces and/or assesses reports and recommendations concerning marketing and sales strategies.
