Sales, Accounts and Business Development Managers

Duncan Lewis Business Immigration Solicitors – Sales, Accounts and Business Development Managers – UK Visa Applications

 

Recruiting high-calibre sales, accounts and business development managers can be crucial to a company’s success in an increasingly competitive global market.

 

Recruitment targets can be hampered by restrictions on Tier 2 visas under UK immigration law, however – leaving UK businesses struggling to recruit the sales, accounts and business development managers they need from a global pool of talent.

 

Duncan Lewis business immigration solicitors can advise companies on the international recruitment of sales, accounts and business development managers – 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 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 sales, accounts and business development managers 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, accounts and business development managers.

 

Under the regulations, the sort of roles within a company that would be eligible for a Tier 2 visa application include:
 

  • Account manager (sales)
  • Area sales manager
  • Business development manager
  • Product development manager
  • Sales manager.

 

UK Visas & Immigration rules also set out the types of duties a sales, accounts and business development manager might undertake to qualify for a Tier 2 visa, including:

 

  • liaises with other senior staff to determine the range of goods or services to be sold, contributes to the development of sales strategies and setting of sales targets
  • discusses employers’ or clients’ requirements, carries out surveys and analyses customers’ reactions to product, packaging, price, etc
  • compiles and analyses sales figures, prepares proposals for marketing campaigns and promotional activities and undertakes market research
  • handles customer accounts
  • recruits and trains junior sales staff
  • produces reports and recommendations concerning marketing and sales strategies for senior management
  • keeps up to date with products and competitors.

 

The current minimum salary range for a sales, accounts and business development manager applying for a Tier 2 UK visa would be £30,600 for an experienced member of staff – and £22,000 for a new entrant.
