NotesBeware of emailed job offers for childcare and other similar positions in the UK. These are all frauds.

• Since November 2008, no visas are granted for household workers from outside Europe. Work visas are only granted for highly-skilled positions, most of which require university degrees.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK requires you to pay them any money. All fees would be paid by the employer.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK uses a free email address from Yahoo, Gmail, or similar services.

• No legitimate employment agency in the UK uses a telephone number that begins with +4470 (070). These are non-geographic numbers available to anyone in the world.

• No legitimate business requests payment via Western Union.

Your employer Mercure London Bridge Hotel has asked us to contact you on requisite information required to process supporting documents that would aid your travel down to your duty location to resume duties in record time.

Vaccination would be carried out at the port of entry into the country and it is advisable to present all documents on procurement as that would enable the authorities vested with the duty to carry out the vaccinations and administer their duties. The DER Certifications will have to embrace the registration and approval of your relevant information with the designated local agencies (Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Commerce and industry respectively with DER inclusive).

The reason for the review of this policy as communicated by the DER is to ensure that expatriates without Letter of Contract do not have to travel down to United Kingdom for any other reason other than the primary aim of commencement of work as required.

This will enable us commence and finalize all your necessary Work Permit/Visa and registration of documents as we need to reach out to our contact in your embassy for immediate procurement of your visa and other supporting documents in record time.
As a result of time constraint for expatriates owing to the work commencement date, we ensure that you forward the information needed for the procurement of your required documents and thereafter we shall inform you on prompt.

You have to process your papers immediately. You know why? You have to process immediately so you can secure the job for yourself, so you dont loose it. When you get your visa, we will be assured we have a house keeper, this is our assurance and your commitment also.

I will like to inform you we have accepted to employ you. We need to start with the visa process immediately. I have a friend which I just told about you. She works in the embassy, she can process your visa. I have told her about you just now, she says you can get your visa in 15 days or less. Lets start as soon as possible.

I know she will get your visa immediately, so dont worry. All you have to do is send her your requirements but first, ask her what your requirements are for obtaining a U.K work visa. I have told her already but just introduce yourself and tell her i referred you. She is very reliable and nice. Her name is Mrs Lily
Email her now and give us feedback on that. Use yahoo or any other email account to email her because she is not on facebook.
