Tier 2 Internship

Tier 2 Internship 

Duration: 4 – 24 weeks
Location: London
Next start:  5 February 2019 
Training fee: £1,500 plus vat

IANS is delighted to bridge the gap between completing a degree in the UK and finding a job that offers Tier 2 sponsorship. This is an opportunity for international students and graduates to intern with employers who have sponsor licences and understand the value the contribution they bring to their businesses and therefore are offering sponsorship to successful interns at the end of the programme.

A Tier 2 internship will give you a chance to connect with Tier 2 sponsors and take advantage of those seeking your qualification and potentials and all you need to do during this internship is demonstrate that you have the attitude, skills and ambition to be part of a team that will grow their business. Our internship will provide you a local and real work experience that will develop your practical and soft skills which is what employers are looking for that are not usually available from the work placements or work experience offered by your university.

You will be able to understand what hiring managers are really looking for when filling their vacancies. You will gain insight to the key areas of operations of business in general and develop the skills you need to align your work planning and daily activities to meet the objectives of your prospective employers.

Please note that the first 4 weeks will be classroom based at our North London Training Centre and delivery will be a combination of lectures, workshops, presentations, discussions and portfolio development. The following 10 weeks will be unpaid internship where the remaining 10 weeks may be paid subject to what the specific sponsor is offering. Who is this training & Internship for?

This is ideal for international students interested in extending their stay in the UK under a work visa sponsorship otherwise known as the Tier 2 category of the points based system (PBS). We work with businesses across all industries and most employers are identifying soft skills like communication, teamwork, time management, emotional intelligence, decision making, and leadership to be lacking in most graduates joining the workforce for the first time. These core skills are relatively absent in the traditional education model.

Our employers are prepared to offer Tier 2 sponsorship to candidates who are able to demonstrate an invaluable contribution to the company within an agreed period between 3 – 6 months. The companies we work with do not wish to discover how you intend to bring value in the future but will ask this question at the end of the opportunity given you through internship. This training will provide you tools, techniques and strategy which can help you secure sponsorship from day one.
