Steve,
You could try having a look at an earlier thread which is on page 9 or 10 at the moment: Anyone emigrated over 40

Employer sponsored migration appears to have age exemptions - look here;

Good luck

I was told by a number of agencies that I needed to move before I was 45 otherwise I would not be able to gain PR and work!! I understand that this is not correct. Best of luck

Hi Steve

There's a migration agent in Hove, East Sussex, who specializes in "unusual or difficult" cases. It would cost nothing to run it by him over the phone. Call The Visa Unit (0845 061 6600) and ask to speak to John Mumford.

Good Luck, Andy
