Default How much is hvac/r technician specialty relevant in the UK?

Hello. I'm interested work as hvac/r technician. Is this specialty relevant in the UK? Primarily I'm interested in direction of ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration systems (maintain, repair). Thanks.

Yes, it's certainly relevant work in the UK, but depends on how you have the right to work. If you need a work visa, you won't qualify as a HVAC technician

As clever-octopus said, if you need a work visa, this is not a job for which work visas are available.

For more information, read Appendix J: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/immigrat...r-skilled-work

This sets out tables which are, and are not, eligible for sponsorship.

The job you described is in Table 4 under SOC code: 5314 Plumbers and heating and ventilating engineers

This is listed as RQF level 3 which is not eligible for sponsorship. However, you should stay abreast of immigration rules, as you MAY be eligible in 2021 if the points-based system immigration rules change. You would still need a job offer from a UK sponsor and you would need to have enough points overall to be eligible.
