Senior Officers in Fire, Ambulance, Prison and Related Services

Duncan Lewis Business Immigration Solicitors – Senior Officers in Fire, Ambulance, Prison and Related Services - UK Visa Applications

 

The international recruitment of senior officers in fire, ambulance, prison and related services such as customs, immigration and excise can be hampered by current restrictions on Tier 2 visas.

 

Duncan Lewis business immigration solicitors can advise public and private providers on the overseas recruitment of senior officers in fire, ambulance, prison and related services – 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 individuals and 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 senior officers in fire, ambulance, prison and related services 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 senior officers in fire, ambulance, prison and related services, including immigration or customs and excise officers.

 

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

  • Fire service officer (government)
  • Prison governor
  • Station officer (ambulance service)

 

UK Visas & Immigration rules also set out the types of duties senior officers in fire, ambulance, prison and related services role might undertake to qualify for a Tier 2 visa, including:

 

  • liaises with other senior officials and/or government departments to determine staffing, financial and other short and long-term needs
  • prepares reports for insurance companies, the Home Office, Scottish Home and Health Department, and other bodies as necessary
  • advises on the recruitment, training and monitoring of staff
  • fire officers plan, direct and co-ordinate an operational plan for

one or more fire stations, attend fires and other emergencies to minimise danger to property and people – and  arrange for the salvaging of goods, immediate temporary repairs and security measures for fire damaged premises as necessary

 

  • ambulance officers plan, organise, direct and co-ordinate the activities of ambulance personnel and control room assistants, for the provision of ambulance services for emergency and non-emergency cases
  • prison officers interview prisoners on arrival and discharge/departure, receive reports on disciplinary problems and decide on appropriate action, make periodic checks on internal and external security, and provide care and support to prisoners in custody
  • revenue and customs, excise and immigration officers advise on the interpretation of regulations concerning taxes, duties and immigration requirements – and enforce these regulations through monitoring of premises, examining goods entering the country to ensure correct duty is paid, and establish that passengers have the necessary authorisation for crossing national borders.

 

The current minimum salary range for senior officers in fire, ambulance, prison and related services applying for a Tier 2 UK visa would be £36,400     for an experienced member of staff – and £31,000 for a new entrant.
