Through a Health and Care Visa, you can work for the NHS, an NHS supplier, or in the adult social care industry. Whether you are able to undertake additional work or not will depend on various factors.
As long as you are doing the job that you were sponsored for, you can take additional paid work on a Health and Care Worker visa. Unpaid voluntary work is also allowed.
You may be required to update your visa for additional paid work. It will highly depend on the work you do and the hours you put in.
You can work for an employer other than your sponsor for about 20 hours every week, provided the work is:
- In a shortage of occupation; or
- At the same level and occupation code as the job you are sponsored for.
You will be required to update your visa if the new job doesn’t meet the above criteria or if you wish to put in more than 20 hours every week.
To update your visa, your second employer must hold a sponsor licence and assign you a new certificate of sponsorship. To confirm that you want to modify your visa, you will have to send a letter with your application.
