Default proof of employment history

Anyone any advice please.....

when I eventually have an ITA to fill in I'll need to prove up to about 10 years previous employment history...

problem is that I can only prove the last 7 years...the previous 3 was for a business who still exist but my manager moved on ages ago (am still in touch though).

Any thoughts anyone??

Thanks!
Lydia

A letter on company headed paper that states you were employed from DATE to DATE is enough.

I submitted a letter with exactly that for one of my old employers.

Uk employment? If so then you can request a history of NI payments from HMRC...

Have all the NI paperwork, but have been advised as it doesnt state what you did at that company (you could have been making the tea) that it doesnt count???

Advised by an immigration agent that it doesnt count towards points for length of relevant work experience i.e. specific job as it only shows you worked at a specific company not what you did there and if you are claiming points say on the LTSS because it only shows that you worked there you cant claim points unless you have a letter on letter heading from that company stating how long you worked there and what you did.

Indeed but in combination with an offer letter or contract NZIS have been known to find that quite acceptable. Both of these methods are useful if for instance the employer in question no longer exists.

I actually telephoned and asked, then you had to write in to the address which they gave. They did charge, cant remember how much, but not loads and you got every NI contribution paid (by year) with the company name (but not address) from when you first started work. Hope this helps.

Thanks for that - I have 12 years experience and 5 out of the 6 companies have been bought, merged or no longer exist. It' very common of the industry I work in so proving my experience could be difficult!
