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.
