This is hugely overdue – what on earth took the Home Office so long to get moving on this? However belated, though, it is good news. And the positions are reported to be permanent, perhaps suggesting some recognition by the Home Office of the massive increased demand that hard Brexit will impose on border officials.

There are two types of job on offer.

The first is Executive Officer Caseworker. There are 120 positions available, on a full-time 9am-5pm basis. The salary is between £23,330 and £26,831. According to the job description, workers will use Home Office guidance to consider immigration applications, make decisions on applications and record casework outcomes and decision letters on the immigration database. The roles will commence in July.

UK Visas and Immigration is also looking for 120 Administrative Officers. The pay for this job, also involving casework, is £20.352 a year.

Well spotted by Simon Kenny.

  1. Brilliant insight – I’ve got 2 cases that seek to address this very issue and on one managed to get an appeal allowed by distinguishing from the facts of McCarthy C-434/09 in that our EEA national did exercise treaty rights in the UK and therefore the following did not apply to him:

    “… Union citizen who has never exercised his right of free movement…”

    I am now waiting to see if the HO will be applying for Permission to appeal…

  2. As things stand now, it seems that family members who obtained PR together with their sponsor could themselves apply for naturalisation before their sponsor did so. If they did not do this they would be expected to leave the UK when their sponsor became British unless they had some other ‘qualification’. Or are there ‘retained rights’ in such an event?

    I do not have a specific case in mind, I’m trying to anticipate questions before cascading information to colleagues in voluntary work.
