Tech North are holding free ‘Tech Nation Visa Surgery Sessions’ in Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Sunderland and Leeds. We're offering an initial amount of free support to help applicants understand the application process, fast track options, exceptional promise options and eligibility criteria.
The 30 minute ‘Office Hours’ style sessions will be open to members of the North’s digital tech community and those looking to relocate to the Northern cities and surrounding areas. You can talk to us in person at the specified venue, or via Skype for an online consultation (please provide your Skype account name when booking your slot).
The Tech North Skype username is: technorth_1
Advice will be focussed on the Tech Nation Visa Scheme – whether it is the right option for you, or your potential new hires. The Scheme might also be of interest to those reaching the end of a graduate entrepreneur visa.
The Tech Nation Visa Scheme makes it possible for tech talent from around the world to come and work in the UK’s digital technology sector, and is part of Tech City UK’s and Tech North's mission to ensure that the UK continues to maintain its position as a globally competitive digital economy.
The Tech Nation Visa Scheme is a 2 stage process that aims to allow people with high level skills in enterprise or technology, to develop their careers and companies in the UK. People who can demonstrate ‘Exceptional Talent’ in digital business, or are recommended to have the ‘potential’ to become world leaders, can apply to have their Visa application, endorsed by Tech City UK.
