Relocating to Accenture London and they are quoting the tier 2 visa cost as 5,000 GBP which seems really high. I am applying from outside the UK and will be reimbursed once I arrive. Any idea what the breakdown of this cost is?

That’s really high. I was quoted ~£2,600 by PwC
- £625 for application fee (for 3 year visa)
- £2,184 for Health Surcharge (3 years)

I could maybe see it being £5K if you had to pay £1,423 for the application fee instead. I know on the gov website depending on your circumstances the fee range is £625 - £1,423 but idk what determines how much you pay. Also, depending on what country you’re from there are costs associated with taking an English test (£200 - £300) and getting a TB test (not sure how much that costs). In addition, if you do priority filing for your application that’s £500. Lastly, this is less of a cost and more of just having the money available, you have to prove that you have £1,270 to support yourself in the UK and that money has to be available ~2 months before you submit your application unless Accenture is able to say they’ll support you that first month in the UK. In which case, that requirement is waived

I have heard cases where this amount is a combination of visa fee and a buy-in money in case you decide to drop your candidature.

This is absurd! I don’t think companies are allowed to charge you for the sponsorship- that’s considered illegal if I’m not mistaken. I work at a competitor and I wasn’t asked to pay a single penny. Would recommend you speak with your HR partner l

Will McKinsey & Company have a case interview portion during the recruiter screening for an Associate-level opening. This is my first interview with them.
The recruiter mentioned that it will only be an audio (Zoom) call, not a video interview. I sort of assumed that there won't be a case interview portion because it is an audio interview with the recruiter. Is my assumption true? I don't want to ask the recruiter with the interview coming up in the next 2-3 days, as it might set a bad opinion.
