A skilled worker visa allows an individual to work in specific skilled jobs that are listed as eligible on the UK government website. These jobs must be offered by employers who are sponsored by the Home Office to employ foreign workers.

How long can I stay in the UK on a skilled worker visa?

What are the conditions of the visa if granted?

If you are successful in being granted a visa, you must only work in the job described in the Certificate of Sponsorship. The skilled worker visa does not allow access to public funds. 

You may be able to perform a second job in certain circumstances, and conduct voluntary work, study (if it doesn’t interfere with the job). You can travel abroad and return to the UK. Your lawyer can advise you on these matters when you are granted a visa.
