Life in the UK as a Skilled Migrant Worker

Skilled Migrant Worker in UK

The United Kingdom offers many opportunities for those who wish to migrate here for working purposes. Under European Law migrant workers are fully protected meaning they cannot be exploited, and if they are then their employer is acting illegally and will face legal action.

In today's society the most popular sector for Skilled Migrant Workers is in Construction. To work high up in Construction you will need qualifications and credentials, which come in the form of ‘tickets’, and to have attended many courses and training programmes. Requirements generally needed are to have a ‘New Roads and Streets Work Act’, ‘EUSR’ ‘NVQ in Plant Operations’ ‘Construction Plant Competence Scheme’ ‘ Site Operations’ ‘Confined Spaces’ and more. If you do not have the relevant tickets but you have a confirmed job offer from a UK employer they will generally pay for your tickets and put you through the relevant programmers. Many UK employers in construction buy houses local to site and offer these as accommodation for migrant workers whilst taking a percentage of their income for rent purposes.

Agencies such as Amex will recruit migrant workers from overseas for large construction companies and pay for their travel and set up taking a percentage of their wage in return, this is the preferred option for many migrants who otherwise may not be able to afford to come to the UK.

The most prominent race of migrants working today in UK construction are Polish people who tend to live and work in groups and do not integrate with the native workers, they have a strong reputation as having good working ethics and are widely respected in the field. Migrant Skilled Workers can come on a Working Visa and during their stay can send money back home to families or if they decide to not use the opportunity as a quick financial fix but a stepping stone to a better quality of life they can bring their families to the UK under Dependant Visas and after a period of five years, providing they have stayed in employment, committed no crimes and abided to all laws then they can apply for citizenship.

Construction has always been a big employer of migrant workers, decades ago this was mainly for Irish migrants who were escaping poverty in their native land and crossed the Irish sea on ships for want of a better life. Many Irish people stayed the rest of their lives here and had families who continued to work in construction. Construction firms today are predominantly ran by Irish people or Irish descendants and always welcome those who are skilled from overseas remembering or knowing of theirs or their descendants similar pleas in times gone by.
