Changing Jobs after getting an EP

Postby bold_brave_spirit » Mon, 12 Feb 2018 9:08 pm

I just got a good role and had my EP approved. I'm on a contract role so my gig is for a year but could be extended and made perm. Who's to say?

I've been getting a lot of calls lately and some of the roles are an advancement for me. So I'm tempted to jump ship before the year is up.

Question: Once you've had an EP approved and are applying for a role with better pay, seniority, is it 'easier' to get an EP for that consecutive job? Or is each application pretty much a 'from scratch' application.

Also how does it work for the sake of not divulging to the current boss that you're looking. If you nail a new role, do you just do the EP in the background unbeknownst to your current boss?

Thanks!

Each application is treated from scratch, but habitually jumping jobs will hamper and could very well derail future employment. Especially considering they are looking for reasons to get rid of FTs.

FT : Foreign Talent
