UK visa sponsorship
We welcome applications from physiotherapists and healthcare professionals from all over the world and can sponsor individuals if the right opportunity is available.
Up until the UK left the European Union (EU), citizens were able to come to the UK and work freely using their EU passport or identity card as evidence of their right to work.
From January 2021, all Ascenti applicants from outside of the UK and Ireland, including European countries, will need to apply for UK visa sponsorship and the right to work as part of new immigration laws. This is unless you are an EU resident already living or studying in the UK and with settled UK status.
If you are a foreign national and we have a current vacancy that you are interested in, please use the form at the bottom of this page to register your interest.
If you are a good match for one of our vacancies, then our Talent Acquisition Team will be in touch to discuss how we progress your application. Please also read through the information below to learn more about moving to the UK and working with us on a sponsored visa.
What will Ascenti cover the cost of?
If your application is successful, then we will cover the cost of your certificate of sponsorship, but you must cover the application fee yourself.
What do I need to be considered for a visa sponsorship?
You must have the needed qualifications and skills detailed on the job description that you are applying for from our current vacancies section.
The HCPC will need to validate your qualifications and credentials from your native country and where you trained before you can work in healthcare in the UK.
Because the HCPC registration process can take a long time, it is extremely beneficial and will fast track your application if you are already registered with the HCPC.
If you do not already hold HCPC registration, then we will ask for evidence that you have applied for this and when you expect to become registered, so that we can determine if we are able to consider you for a current vacancy at this time.
Do we offer a relocation package?
We do not routinely offer relocation packages or any additional financial support to foreign nationals.
For certain roles and locations, we consider special location bonuses and support, but this is part of a wider company initiative and subject to certain criteria.
Which roles are available for sponsored placements?
You can apply for any of our current vacancies listed here and must be prepared to live and work from these locations.
You can also apply to join our Physio Grad Scheme if you have recently graduated from university with the appropriate qualifications and credentials.
Will Ascenti provide any special training or support?
Yes. When you join Ascenti, your manager will work with you to agree a development and training plan for your first six months.
This will be tailored to your individual needs and could include additional training and modules through our online learning platform. For example, training to support your understanding of the UK healthcare system, communication styles and cultural differences.
You will also be able to connect and network with other likeminded healthcare professionals who are also foreign nationals, as part of our special online hub and communication tools.
We are committed to helping our sponsored employees settle into life and work in the UK.
What makes Ascenti special?
At Ascenti we actively work to promote equal opportunities across all that we do, including when we recruit new talent as part of UK visa sponsorship. We have helped many foreign nationals who are already working with us to progress their careers as physiotherapists and are proud of our diverse workforce.
Our people work hard, but love what they do because of the amazing team energy at Ascenti and the rewarding role we all play in changing people’s lives.
We invest heavily in the professional development of our people, high-tech digital health tools and have big ambitions for the future, which makes Ascenti an exciting place to work.
Importantly, we also believe in enabling our people to achieve their goals outside of work and a balanced life overall, with good benefits, home-working and flexible opportunities.
