Tier 2 General Employees

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 requesting information regarding employees working under tier 2 (general) of the skilled worker points based visa system introduced in 2008. Tier 2 (general) is designed to allow skilled workers to come to the UK from outside the European Economic Area to fill a gap in the local labour market.

Please provide the following trust workforce data:

1. Number of trust employees that have worked under tier 2 (general) of the points based visa system every year since January 2010.

2. Number of nurses and midwives that have worked under tier 2 (general) of the points based visa system every year since January 2010.

Please provide the information in a readable electronic format such as .doc, .pdf, .xlsx
…………………………………………………………2010  2011  2012  2013  2014  2015  2016
Tier 2 (Total)                                                  1         4           5        8         8        18       109
Tier 2 (Nurses & Midwives)                      1         1           1        2         2         4           12
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Please note that 75 of the Trust’s Tier 2 visas in 2016 are for Filipino nurses; once they have obtained their NMC registrations they will be part of the Nursing & Midwifery workforce. Until this time they are part of the Trust’s unqualified nursing workforce and, therefore, appear in the Total figures but not the Nurses & Midwives figures.
