There is acute skill shortage in most sectors worldwide putting Nigerians with the right skillset in high demand around the world. United Kingdom particularly had suffered in the face of the Covid19 pandemic and Brexit, which saw the exodus of Europeans from the United Kingdom. This, along with the aging population of the country, had led to acute shortage of key workers including carers and health care assistants. Consequently, the UK is opening its borders to the
commonwealth, especially persons with the right qualification and the desire to work.
The UK had previously categorised Health Care Workers as a shortage occupation. But they have recently singled out health care assistants as a “shortage occupation” on its own. This had led to the institution of a new visa category for health care assistants. This will be opened to any person looking to work as carer, caregivers, care aides and care home staff from anywhere in the world with little or no professional training and the minimum salary will be equivalent to N11.5 million salary per year.
To sweeten the deal, the UK government also introduced some mouth-watering perks i.e. reduced application fees and cancellation of some basic mandatory costs included in previous work visa applications.
To give more information and help in securing this work permit visa, ASQ Development and Training Services (Nigeria) Limited with the help and support of their sister companies, ASQ Training and Assessment (UK) and ASQ Recruitments Limited (UK), are putting up a webinar to sensitize interested Nigerians on how to go about exploring this amazing opportunity. To access the webinar, intending participants are required to join a Telegraph group where information about the zoom webinar will be released to all group members.
