Immigration benefits of a workpermit.com Assessment Certificate
Why do you need an Assessment Certificate?
In some countries, such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada and increasingly in the UK, it is common practice for highly skilled individuals to gain permanent entry without having to find a job or start a business in that country. Unfortunately, in the US and sometimes in the UK, as well as in EU countries, most people will need a job offer and employer sponsorship before gaining entry.
You will in many cases need to have a job offer to gain entry to a particular Country. It is the employer rather than you who applies for the work permit or work visa. Even where it is available not everyone can come under a skilled immigration programme for entry to Countries such as the UK, Australia, New Zealand or Canada and the lengthy processing times frequently mean that employers are unable to wait until the visas have been processed.
This can be a difficult situation to be in. Potential employers need to feel confident that there is a good reason to employ you rather than someone from the resident job market, and that if they offer you a job they will be able to obtain a work visa or work permit. To help jobseekers in such a situation, workpermit.com offers assessment certificates. These certificates confirm to an employer that:
- An experienced Consultant has assessed your skills and qualifications. If you have a suitable job offer, we can assist your employer with obtaining a work permit.
- We can represent both you and your employer on a no-permit, no-fee basis.
As a jobseeker, your first step should be to review the various visa categories for the Country you are interested in. This information should allow you to check if you are eligible for a work permit for that particular country and will help you to avoid spending money on an assessment that is negative. Once you have determined that a formal assessment would be beneficial, please go to the immigration Assessment Certificate application form.
The fee for the assessment certificate is £30.00. When an employer instructs us to obtain a permit for them to employ you, we will pay you £50. We will refund the £30 and pay you an extra £20 to thank you for bringing us some business!
