Engineering Skilled Worker Sponsorship

Joining Universal Fabrications as an overseas skilled worker offers a unique and rewarding opportunity to be part of a leading sheet metal fabrication and precision machining company. The company is situated in Nuneaton within the surrounding areas of Leicester, Coventry and Birmingham. We recognise the importance of attracting the best engineering talent from around and can offer a really great place to develop your career.

Whether you are within the UK on a current visa, or outside the UK seeking employment we can support and guide you through the sponsorship process. Following receipt of your job application we will check your experience and qualifications against our job description requirements. Once short listed we will organise a video call to introduce the company to you whilst carrying out the first stage interview. In this interview, we are keen to understand why you want to join us, discuss your relevant experiences and the sponsorship process itself. If you are successful in securing the job offer, we will then allocate a certificate of sponsorship (CoS) to you which will enable you to apply for your skilled worker visa.
