    Hi just want some advice please..I was facing redundancy from the Supermarket where I work but fortunately they have redeployed me to another branch..same position and same pay rate..however they have given me a new contract detailing start dates,pay rate etc..its like i've started a new job even though its the same company...I do have 1 yrs bank statements and pay slips..I was going to apply through category A but i'm thinking of applying through category B instead as it looks like i recently started this job..i'm thinking of explaining in the guidance notes to give extra clarification...any thoughts would be appreciated

    I would suggest doing exactly as you have stated, that way you cover everything including clarification in the guidance notes.

    I'm really sorry to hear about your job Charlie. I've been through that myself and it's a shock to the system, let alone happening before an Application for a visa. One question I'd want to put forward however.

    If you've accepted a new position within the same company, rather than taking redundancy pay. Wouldn't this new essentially new Job specification, rather than a new job? I.e. You've worked in your current role for three years. Taking this new position still means you've worked for the employer for three years, not 1 month after accepting the new position?

    I would go to the HR department and ask for notification your employment started and has been continual with the supermarket group from when you first started with them and that you have been redeployed within the group but under new terms and conditions.
    I would explain to them why you need this clarity.
    For example you start with Morrisons at Richmond and then move to Morrisons Edgeware You are still employed by Morrisons as a group!
    What are your payslips headed? are they the same?

    thanks guys..Yep I'm going to go through category B to be on the safe side and ask my Employer to write a letter explaining that I have been with the company over 2 years and I have been redeployed and provided with an updated contract. The difference in Payslips is only the change of location ( but the same supermarket group) as i'm doing the same Job and same Pay rate. I want to keep my application simple and reluctant of providing my old contract with a lower pay rate and my revised contract of the higher rate. this past 2 years I've had 3-4 increases in my pay rate but throughout this period I was earning over £18900 even with the lower pay rate.

    You would of thought it was a change in job specification rather than a change in Job but the contract starts from last month.
