The Shortage Occupation List of jobs has once again been cut.  Those people considering making an immigration application under the Tier 2, PBS category need to ensure that the job is still on the list.  These changes will come into effect on the 14th November 2011, so you need to make your UK immigration applications as soon as possible!

UK Immigration Minister Damian Green said:

‘Alongside our limits on overseas workers we are also taking action to provide businesses with the skills they need from the British workforce and reduce their need for migrants.

‘We want the brightest and the best people from outside the EU with the skills we can benefit from in the UK.’

Jobs cut from the list are:

  • secondary education biology teachers;
  • speech and language therapists;
  • pharmacists;
  • orthoptists;
  • veterinary surgeons; and,
  • rank and file orchestral musicians.

Jobs to be included are:

  • actuaries;
  • high integrity pipe welders;
  • environmental scientists; and,
  • geochemists
