Default USA citizens move to UK

Hi I looking for guidance from an American citizen that moved to UK. I would love some feedback. I am planning on moving from USA to UK, but I have no idea what to do or where to look. I did look if my company has any hospitals they are with. To my surprise yes. Next I have to find out if they would sponsor me. How do you find out if your current company would sponsor without letting

If you wish to check whether your employer is able to sponsor you for a Skilled Worker visa then you can check to see whether they appear on the sponsor list.

Thank you for the list, and I did see that London bridge Hospital is on the list of registered sponsors. So now I need to figure out will they transfer me to another country, but I don't want them to know that I'm moving just yet.

The NHS often sponsors medical professionals

When enquiring about a possible transfer you don't tell your employer that you are going to move anyway, you just say that you are interested in moving to xxx and whether there would be an opportunity to transfer with your company.

Asking only opens the door to maybe moving if the opportunity arises.

Unless your job is on the shortage skills list you won't be eligible:

I don't think the list below is fully comprehensive, but it gives a good idea of what skilled workers are needed

https://www.gov.uk/skilled-worker-visa/your-job

If you look on the London Bridge Hospital web site you can see what job openings there are at the moment. Note, not all jobs on this list will qualify for work visas due to salary levels.

Interesting I was able to pull up the register companies that sponsor, and I did see London bridge hospital was on the list. I have to contact with their HR department to find out inter transfer from 1 county to another county within the same company.

I did contact my HR and they did advise that I have to contact with London bridge hospital when it comes to sponsorship if I do or don’t need one for inter transfer employee. I just sent an email too London bridge hospital to discuss about the protocols for inter transfer employees from the same company from one country to another

Your occupation doesn’t need to appear on the skills shortage list in order for you to be sponsored for a Skilled Worker visa however if you qualify I would opt for the Health and Care Worker visa as you would be exempt from the Immigration Health Surcharge.

https://www.gov.uk/health-care-worker-visa

Avoid the ICT visa if possible because it wouldn’t lead to settlement.

Thank you for the information on the ICT visa if I had gone thru that route I would have never had qualified for settlement.
