Default Category A - changing jobs before submitting application

I know you need six months full pay slips and bank statements before you can apply under Category A of the spouse visa.

I have just started a new job but I'd like to find a new one (within the same company). What are the implications for this? - i.e. would this affect the payslips issue? Do you have to be in one continuous job (excluding possibility of promotion - which I've read you can just include the note in your application right?) or can you switch jobs and not have any implications?

Thanks

You can switch roles with the same employer.

thanks for your advice. Its actually a different department within the Civil Service, hence why I am unsure whether it counts as the same employer or not. If that is the case is this possible in terms of pay slips?

Just a hint as you're a new member - if you include all the relevant information in your initial post then people will be able to offer the best information. Cheers.

Can you flesh out the details a bit? Are you a Fast Streamer?

apologies. Nope I didn't go through the fast strean, just nornal external recruitment. I am currently working for DIT as a foot in the door but I'd want something more challenging, hence why I asked whether it was possible to move to, lets say DCMS and still be considered under the same 'civil service employer' -however each department runs their own pay structure so slightly unclear.

I would say that would be considered a different employer. Depending on your salary it may not be a problem as you could apply under Category B.

Hi BIP, I can't go under Category B so I will have to stick with Category A. I have decided to look for a different role within the same department.

question - what would define as six months continuous employment though? Would the current job literally have to finish on a Friday and the new one start on a Monday for that to work?
