    Default Work visa to Residence visa job change

    Hi all, So i am on a Work Visa under the essential skills catergory. My passport says i can only work as a Restaurant Manager at my current place of work.
    I am applying for residency in the next couple of days.

    I am wanting to change my job sooner rather than later as a job i really want has just come up. Is there anyway i can work elsewhere, whilst still on the work visa but applying for residency (partnership)

    Any info or help would be great.

    If you change your job now, you'll need to apply for a variation of conditions to reflect the change. In some cases, you need a whole new work visa.
    Because you mention applying for residency under partnership, why don't you get a open work visa first? Then you can work for whoever you like and wait for the residency later.
