Steps to select the right SOC Code for you
A Skilled Worker (SW) Visa is one of the most applied for visa categories for immigration in the UK. While preparing an SW visa application, an immigration lawyer has to perform a number of checks starting from the case risk assessment to the required legal activities, customer handling, application preparation and finally the submission. The visa application’s preparation takes time and manual effort, as for every job profile, a different eligibility check has to be made according to the UK Immigration System. Different occupations/ job profiles are categorized under the federal statistical standard called the Standard Occupation Classification (SOC). Each job category is assigned an SOC code which defines the benchmark eligibility criteria for an applicant to apply for a SW visa.

For every SW visa application, one of the main tasks that a caseworker performs is going through the Job Description/Duties/Roles in the applicant’s job offer and then match it to the correct SOC code manually. We have come up with a solution that automates this task for them with the help of Machine Learning.
