BA would be even more challenging without a UK work permit.

I think Virgin and Ryanair group sponsor; BA I think not. I personally prefer to be in Europe anyway - horrendous tax rates vs. public services in the UK. The pilot market there seems to have gone from absorbing huge numbers of foreigner pilots - to having difficulty attracting anyone to go near it. I would be quite tempted by lovely Vienna, even on a modest net salary. Heard ok things about the general operation there.

Think carefully!

I joined straight after Covid from an ACMI, to get to upgrade you need one full winter and 800 hours, then I failed the upgrade test and need 2 more OPCs with excellent grades again. Resigned, as it is just not worth the money to wait, especially, ACMIs again pay SFO same as you get in LDA as CP. Yes, people are leaving heavily. Also promissed salary during training was postponed until first full month after Line Check. No pennies before.
Rent has risen in VIE + train+ food, you will spend around 1.2 - 1.5k a month in VIE. If your income is 3 to 3.6 (max 100 BH), is it worth it?
13th and 14th salary is paid only if full 5 months on payroll (after LC).
Consider carefully.

Good luck!

Seems that someone who received the same email on 20th received the invitation today.

Fingers crossed

If you are looking to move into the group be aware that you will have a major disadvantage. You have to be very careful, the idea of only having 800 hours went after covid. They moved it to 1500 hours and I have good information that experienced rhs people are being held back in order to provide assistance to the low houred skippers. It goes right across the Ryan Air group. Their mantra is, promises they aren't worth anything. Many very experienced FO's are extremely agitated and many looking to move out of the group.
