Updates to guidance for overseas workers

Important guidance for international workers seeking health and social care roles in the UK has been updated and republished.

19 March 2024

The international candidate guidance, Applying for Health and Social Care Jobs in the UK From Abroad, has been updated and republished. All international candidates thinking about applying for a health or social care job in the UK should read this guidance first. 

The guidance provides support for prospective overseas candidates when seeking jobs in the UK health or social care sectors. It includes information on how to avoid scams, being aware of exploitation and what to do about it and other practical information that those seeking work in the UK need to know about.  The guidance has been split into two parts to improve navigation and includes some new content as well.

Find the guidance on the .GOV website.
