Vira International Vira International a globally recognised recruitment firm recently branched out into the Education arena. We are actively recruiting secondary school teachers with a genuine love for teaching and the ones who truly want to make positive difference in the lives of teenagers and young adults.   UK has a high demand for secondary Math and Science teachers. The recruitment crisis in schools deepens; UK schools are increasingly looking to recruit overseas trained Maths & Science teachers to fill these vacancies. Overseas trained teachers may not be entitled to work in UK however, Tier 2 sponsorship can offer an alternative to enable them to work in UK.   This increasing demand for Teachers in the UK has meant that the UK must rely on staff from outside the European Union, hence most teaching roles have been classified under the UKVI’s ‘Shortage category’.The Tier 2 Sponsorship visa offers a route into the UK for skilled teachers who have a full-time job offer from a UK based employer (schools)   Vira has expanded its UK operations to recruit experienced and talented teachers, who fall outside traditional visa routes and then support schools in processing Tier 2 Sponsorship visas. At Vira International we place teachers in the Science (Chemistry & Physics only) and Maths department.   Here is also a high demand for teachers at key stages of secondary school, in permanent teaching roles.
