Tech North, the government funded initiative to accelerate the development of the North’s digital economy, are holding free ‘Tech Nation Visa Surgery Sessions’ in Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and Sunderland. The Leeds session will be held on 30th November at the offices of Ward Hadaway in Leeds.
Tech North are offering an initial amount of free support with 30 minute ‘office hours’ style sessions to help applicants understand the application process, fast track options, exceptional promise options and eligibility criteria. These will be open to members of the North’s digital tech community in addition to those seeking to relocate to the Northern cities and surrounding region. The sessions can either be face to face at the specified venue, or via Skype for an online consultation.
As part of Tech City UK’s and Tech North’s mission to ensure that the UK continues to maintain its position as a globally competitive digital economy, the Tech Nation Visa Scheme makes it possible for tech talent from around the globe to work in the digital technology sector in the United Kingdom.
A two stage process, the Tech Nation Visa Scheme aims to allow people with high level skills in enterprise or technology to develop their careers and companies in the UK. Those able to demonstrate ‘exceptional talent’ in digital business, or who are deemed to have the ‘potential’ to become world leaders, can apply to have their Visa application endorsed by Tech City UK.
