I've recently relocated with my husband to London on a Tier 2 ICT spouse visa. I've been offered a part-time consulting job, but I can't find any information online about whether I could have a second full-time job in addition to this consulting work.

On this visa, can I work a full-time 35 hour a week job and also work part-time as a consultant with another company?

Yes, it's a spouse visa. You're saying there aren't any limitations at all? I could work one full-time job and another part-time consultancy, both with London companies?

Yes you can. No restriction on the types of job you can do (with a few exceptions).

There is no Tier 2 spouse visa. It's called a dependent visa. If that's what you have, as I've said you can do whatever you want. It's your husband whose options are limited.

Though it has nothing to do with your visa, it's usually not possible to work for one company and do another work for a rival company, as that would probably breach your contract terms with your first employer.

Nyclon- I'm looking at the visa right now and it says Tier 2 ICT Long Term Staff Partner.

Joppa- Thanks for your help! The two companies aren't in the same line of work, so I should be okay with the non-competing clause, but I'll definitely check to make sure before signing anything.
