I need advise regarding a post which a hospital is offering,
Actually I had applied for FY2 post at this hospital but I received an email from them stating they would like to consider me for FY1 post,
So my concerns are
1.Are there any disadvantages in taking nontraining-FY1 post if u have already done internship back in India?
2.Is it difficult to get Tier2 visa for FY1 post as the salary will be low?
Since I have two years of gap after my internship, I thought it would be better to start from basic level but at the same time I am thinking if that would be a bad idea for Visa?
Is there anybody from India working as an FY1 in the UK now ? Would like to know if its really impossible to get tier2 visa for FY1?
