Please note that from January 2021, to work in the UK all candidates who are not UK or Republic of Ireland (RoI) nationals require sponsorship unless you have permission to work via another route. Non-UK/RoI candidates wishing to apply can self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship by accessing the 'Skilled Worker visa' link on the right hand-side.

Overseas applicants applying for entry clearance into the UK must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided in continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years.

It's cheaper to apply for and you do not need to pay the annual immigration health surcharge.
