Standard Occupation Code 5431

As many of you will be aware AIMS made a submission to the recent Home Office/Migration Advisory Committee consultation on Shortage Occupations. The Migration Advisory Committee have subsequently made a recommendation to the Home Office that Standard Occupation Code 5431 (Butchers) be listed as a Shortage Occupation. Should this be accepted by the Home Office then those coming to work in the UK from overseas in members businesses will immediately collect an additional 20 points towards the 70 points required.


Here is a list of every role covered by Standard Occupation Code 5431 and as you can see this covers every element of every role within AIMS’ members businesses.
