Hi new here,
NATS UK is wanting work visa before applying.But the rules say that you either
1. need a job offer in hand to apply for a work visa
2.a sponsorship from your company who is recruiting you
In both the cases NATS UK is not going to take the responsibility.I have asked them but they said you need to have a work permit before applying.
I would request all of you here,my respected seniors or my loved juniors or my mates if anybody have any idea please help me out.
I would be thankful to you.

I can understand your predicament, but I donít think itís that unusual for a company to only accept applications from people who already have a right to live and work in the country concerned, while at the same time being unable to assist you in terms of sponsorship.

From what I understand, NATS get thousands of applications a year, and although I suppose they *could* assess overseas candidates who donít currently have a right to work here, that is probably a gamble they donít want or need to take.

Probably not the answer you want, but given the current wait to start courses for those who have passed Stage 3, and the delay for those who have recently completed Stage 2 moving on to Stage 3, I can’t imagine it will be in the next 12 months. Pure speculation, though... so who knows?

Remember that ANS only have contracts (currently....) at 2 airports though, each of those with around 20 ATCOs so can't imagine there is a huge demand for new ab-initio ATCOs!

My advice would be to definitely stick out the temporary stop on applications at NATS, get experiences that you can talk in your interview about, and apply when the recruitment window reopens.

Has anyone heard from NATS recruitment recently? I got in on the last batch of the old process and we were due to hear about course dates in August but nothing so far.

Nope, not a peep! However, I did email a few weeks ago and was told there had been a slight delay in confirming the dates, but hopefully weíll be hearing something in the next week or two...

I was going to email but as it seems we're all in the same boat I guess more thumb twiddling is the order of the day!

Same for me, nothing yet - as I was told August, I was expecting something by the end of the work day yesterday...

I was told on Tuesday that it's still being arranged and will probably be another few weeks of waiting.

Well, itís certainly an interesting interpretation of ďearly AugustĒ...

It would be helpful if HR could send round a brief email letting everyone know that itíll be another few weeks, as opposed to leaving us in limbo, and presumably it would reduce the number of enquiries I imagine they must be getting! Oh well...

Did they say why there had been such a long delay?

Afraid not and I didn't expect to be told really. I'm sure everybody's got their theories but it continues to be a waiting game!

Does anyone have any links for any online pre-learning material that could be useful for people (like me) waiting for course dates to be released?

I'm just eager to get started!
