For reference my friend and I are both on the tier 2 visa.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for getting in touch.
This would depend on the context, are you asking if there are any restrictions with your Tier 2 visa if you were working on a project outside of the UK?
Thanks for getting back, hope you are well!
Yes, I'll be starting as an analyst in September on a tier 2 Visa. Say I am posted outside the UK for a project, is there any restrictions on how long I am able to spend overseas? I heard of something like a 60 day restriction per year.
This would be a question for the graduate on-boarding team who handled your visa application. Do you have their details? Which role are you joining?
I have been in touch with Stephen from the graduate recruitment team regarding my other on boarding queries. Is he the relevant person to be asking ? I will be starting in the strategy graduate program.
Stephen is the best person to speak with regarding visa queries. He handles the on-boarding for Analytics, Strategy and Consulting.
Alright, thanks for the advise Oliver! I'll be sure to get in touch with him. Also, slightly off topic but can I ask if there is a provision for an internal transfer to another Accenture office in another country?
There is provision for this, however, you will need to apply internally for the role, complete the application process and have managerial approval to do so. Does this help?
Just to clarify, would this entail applying for the role from scratch via the job portal? Or is the application internal?
I assume managerial approval refers to buy-in from the office one wishes to transfer to?
This would be managed internally. In terms of approval, this would be from your current line manager i.e. not your potential one.
That certainly clears things up. Thanks for your help today Oliver!
No problem, glad that helped
