They can't get a job unless they are.
Unfortunately, some qualifications from Poland (and likely other Eastern European Countries, perhaps also UK?), etc, have been proved to be forged. Corruption was rife in these countries in the past, it was a way of life. I know they are trying to improve things, but it doesn't happen overnight.
Sometimes the verification process, and record keeping is not as efficient in Poland, etc, as it is in the UK. I have seen forged qualifications myself, though obviously I cannot go into great detail over this on line.
They do, there are plenty of places avaliable for newly qualified nursing staff, both via the NHS or privately.
I think in Scotland, newly qualified nurses are no longer guaranteed permanent employment through the NHS as they used to be? I believe this stopped two years ago. Not sure about England?
Probably, but their language is checked during the interview process and most of them will have CAE certificates.
Language testing in Poland is sometimes known to be flawed! I think they call the English test 'Merlin?' test, or something like that? It is common knowledge that 'English' students in Poland frequently sit this test in other peoples names to get good results If the testing was to be done in the UK that might be better.
Show me an example of a contract that is paying less money than a UK worker.
Some workers for British Companies, are employed through British agencies, with agents outwith the UK, this can be for tax evasion or other reasons....The 'no, or little' reciprocal tax agreement that exists only between Poland and Cyprus, within the EU is an example of this.
Though not common knowledge, it is often used by British Companies.
These contracts always pay less than British rates, taking advantage of the 'no, or little tax' loophole. After all, what most people (migrant workers) only care about, is the cash in their pocket, not deductions.....or whether the country of employment is receiving any tax.
No they are paid the same wages as their counterparts in the same jobs.
How do the agencies make their money then, they are not charities? Do they not take the money that should be going to improve conditions of workers, regardless of whether they are Eastern European or British.
That is why they must go through an enhanced disclosure.
ns, or British?
Is an enhanced disclosure not only a check within the UK......I didn't think it could be done through Poland, or other Eastern European countries?
I thought Police checks are only done on the history of foreign workers from the date they entered the UK.
That is why so many migrant workers so readily got employment at Heathrow Airport, and even in the Houses of Parliament.
