An A-Z of jobs under £30,000 – the threshold that could bar skilled EU migrants

The governments white paper on migration, due to be published this year, could include extending the £30,000 minimum salary threshold to EU migrants.

Currently, non-EU migrants need a specific category of visa to come and work in the UK – the “skilled workers” one requires them to earn at least £30,000 and to have a job offer.

According to multiple newspaper reports, this could be the new policy for skilled EU migrants too: they may be required to have a job offer and hit the minimum salary threshold (£30,000) before they can come to the UK on five-year-long visas.

So if this became policy, it would rule out these jobs…
