Default Skilled migrant visa and reducing working hours

Hi there
Just wondering if you can help me. I am a registered nurse on a skilled migrant visa from UK originally. I have been working here full time 1.0 FTE since September 2017 and was fully granted my skilled migrant visa November 2017. I am still working at 1.0 FTE but I want to reduce my hours to 0.8 FTE. This would not affect my visa? I am still in the same job.
Hope someone can advise.
Many thanks.

any changes to the visa you came in on needs to be advised to Immigration.

As Mrs F said inform your immigration officer but 0.8 is 32 hours so still acceptable as full time. I just dripped them an email when i changed ward and soent 3 nonths in a casual contract (still did 32 hra minimum) they didnt have a problem with it at all.

I am unclear as to the visa.
You came on a Work to Residence.
Then applied for residency under the skilled migrant policy?

Do you have any work condition on your visa ?

Have you previously fulfilled the condition and have applied to have the condition removed or can apply to have the condition removed ?

Unless there is a condition stated on your Skilled Migrant Resident Visa pertaining to work then you do not have to inform immigration of anything and should be free to do as you please.

When granted Skilled Migrant Resident Visa using a job offer, there is usually a condition attached to the visa that states you must take up that job offer within 3 months and remain in that job for up to 12 months. Normally after fulfilling any work condition you would inform Immigration who would then remove the condition thus allowing you to change job, hours, employer, work for yourself, not work at all.
