So you’ve been studying about UK immigration law or have a limited amount of experience that you want to deepen. You are known by others as keen to get experience in the immigration sector and are smart to resolve immigration queries.
You are not phased by casework, research, administration and relish the chance to give not just ordinary immigration advice.
You are thinking outside the box regularly but are not paralysed by analysis.
You are organised, able to research and quickly find answers to questions you don’t know off the top of your head and don’t tire until you have the answers.
You’re so organised and at the top of your class or and have the grades to back it up and want to have the experience to back it up and potentially a route into practice.
If this is you, then we are looking for immigration interns that are able to follow instructions to the letter and excel in their practice to eventually think outside the box and anticipate possible outcomes to ensure that clients obtain their aims.
You will be providing support to our immigration advisors to make sure that our clients are provided quality immigration advice.
Our immigration advisors are pivotal to our service delivery. And you will be trained to reach the level of immigration advisor.
Positions are from flexible time to full time from 09:00-18:00 and requires you to come into the office in London’s Canary Wharf area. We prefer to invest in interns that are on our full time program.
You will be trained to handle everything that is within the scope of the OISC’s level 1 scheme before we place you on supervision to achieve that registration in order to provide immigration advice and assistance on a broad range of visa, immigration and citizenship law both for the UK and Europe.
You’re the person that actually wants to make sure that clients get their visas and other travel documents in time. You love researching and finding out how to achieve this using laws and seeing the whole picture as well as seeing the holes.
Therefore the position has high expectations. But if you’re the person we’re looking for, and are the type who gets motivated by high expectations, then read on.
Casework admin, casework admin, casework admin. Research, Research, research… and more.
We need you get to grips with all aspects of UK and EU applications. That means being involved in taking instructions from clients, taking notes on the initial instructions paperwork and then assisting the immigration lawyer/caseworker to prepare the application for submission to the relevant government department.
You will be expected to keep all applications, files and admin in order, clean and organised.
What else? You will be expected to help ensure that applicants’ applications are anticipated to make sure that they are successful and query everything. Hence why we keep banging on about being ahead of curve.
You need to answer some hard questions when they arrive so research will be part of your daily grind.
You will, therefore, be expected to keep up with learning and not just CPD, but also personal and other professional training.
But what’s the point in accumulating all that knowledge... just to keep it to yourself? Of course, you will also be expected to lead some of our online content creation and draft articles for research and promotion.
In your recent past life, you will have been working in a law firm handling immigration applications, and/or also having worked in a visa application firm, or even at the very least worked in a solicitors firm or chambers with a focus on immigration.
You will have handled a varied and constantly consistent caseload dealing with various applications from entry clearance and extensions through to nationality and citizenship.
It’s a must that you have also been exposed to EU applications both in the UK and also to the Schengen States.
Exposure to a high number of applications from South Korea, Japan, China, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Philippines, Russia, the EU, Canada & US is a must.
As part of your normal work routine, you will have also been very aware of the importance of marketing and client relationship handling. To an extent that you were considerate and proactive about marketing your services, responding to clients and ensuring that they had an experience that exceeded their expectations.
In your past life, you will have made suggestions as to operations and casework that has meant that changes have been made to processes, staff or preparing applications by the organisation.
This includes having and building great relationships with all parties involved in the business, from clients, team members, regulators and other interested third parties including the government.
Putting all that together, you will also have been expected to work on your initiative and be a point of contact for other members of staff needing answers about your areas of expertise. You will have been an important point of contact for getting answers for clients, for team members and also for operational purposes.
With all that responsibility, you would have been making sure that all matters that you were dealing with were not only met on time but that you were always ahead of curve and anticipated what’s next.
