I got the Promise endorsement, but I applied for Talent

Hi TN Community :wave:t3:,

I recently got endorsed for Promise, however I applied for Talent. I have been a senior exec for 3 years (in product led financial technology companies), with 10 years product experience and I also have 2 companies I cofounded… do you think I can appeal?

Congratulations, does it have an impact on the main objective of you applying for global talent?

Not really…I would just like the added flexibility of mobility after 3 years instead of 5… I travel quite a lot for work and vacations, and I am concerned that this could affect that. Not a deal breaker and I am happy to have received the endorsement (although I could be wrong with how I think the days in country are calculated), but I would love more flexibility after 3 years over 5 years😭.

As far I as I know there is no mechanism for you to appeal this. Unless you want to ask home office if you were endorse in error.

Thanks for the feedback :pray:t2:

First, congratulations.

Work-related travel (out of the UK) does not count against you. Please get the proof and the 5 years will pass in no time.

Thank you.

Thanks Oladayo for that tip!

Hi @Khamis would you mind sharing you Cv or Linkedin? I’m about to submit my application and I have the same concern…

I have more than 5 years experiences in digital marketing but there are few years not in a digital tech company (more like e-commerce/ online retailers.) According to TN, only business role in a tech is eligible so technically, I only have 3 years qualified experience. Even though the skill sets in whatever type of company are similar…I see myself a talent based on the total experience.

I feel like in your case, TN may only recognize that 3 yrs senior exec in fintech company (while you obviously have more than 5 years experience in total.)

When you say 10 years product experience, was it in a digital tech product led company as well?

@Khamis did TN mentioned why they endorsed you a promise instead of talent?

On the contrary, I applied for promise and got endorsement for exceptional talent!
