Some operators like mine (Boeing/Airbus operator) look at hiring pilots on a Zero Flight Time basis and only jet airliner type hours count. I'm not saying I agree but that is the way the rules are written.
Not necessarily so according to my understanding of CAP 804, as long as you have the right sort of hours on a heavy turboprop then this isn't an issue:

"When a pilot is changing from a turbo-prop to a turbo-jet aeroplane or from a turbojet to a turbo-prop aeroplane, additional simulator training shall be required."

FCL.730.A is the reference from CAP 804
