Skilled Worker visa holders are sponsored to work in a specific role but can also undertake ‘supplementary employment’ with the same or a different employer alongside their main role, as long as they are still working in their main sponsored role and the supplementary work is:
As part of a right to work check before any supplementary work starts, the visa holder will need to present a copy of their Skilled Worker CoS details, and confirmation from the Staff Immigration Team (SIT) of any additional duties reported, if applicable, to show the type(s) of work they are permitted to undertake.
Examples of activities which would not be seen as the same type of work
Research and university teaching. A researcher can only undertake teaching if this forms part of their role (see below)
University teaching and summer schools. As summer schools are normally for school leavers considering university, teaching in this context would be seen as Secondary (school), or Further (college), rather than Higher (university), education level teaching which each fall under different job codes.
Contact SIT to discuss any proposed supplementary employment where it is not clear if it is the same type of work as the visa holder’s main role.
