Hi, we are currently applying for my husband to join me in the UK on a spouse visa.
He is an aircraft maintenance engineer, which we understand happens to also be one of the Shortage Occupations listed as a possible route into the UK (code 5235).
He has not applied for any jobs until he gets his visa.
Is it worth mentioning the Shortage Occupation on his application?
We had planned to write in answer to question 2.8 pf appendix 2 "I intend to seek employment as an aviation mechanic. I understand that this is a shortage occupation, code 5235"
Should he include his CV detailing his experience in this field?
Is it a good idea to mention this SOC?

Thank you

No it's not worth mentioning and attaching his CV is unnecessary. His previous experience, occupation and ability to get a job are irrelevant and not considered at all for a spouse visa and will have no impact on his application. It's your employment and salary that are important.

Additionally, it's best not to clutter the application with unnecessary information and documents.
