Previously only Senior Care Assistant roles were suitable for sponsorship and the role of a Care Assistant was unsuitable for the Skilled Worker / Health and Care Worker Visa however this has changed temporarily.
From 15 February 2022 the following roles are included on the Shortage Occupation List and so are suitable for sponsorship for the Health and Care Worker visa:
- Care Assistant;
- Care Worker;
- Home Care Assistant;
- Home Carer; and
- Support Worker (Nursing Home).
