Hi all,

I'm in an Irish citizen living in Lyon, France, simply minutes from the Alps and my major stumbling block to getting a job in the Alps especially through Natives and other English based sites has been a lack of UK NI number and a UK based bank account.

What are the steps for acquiring an NI number, do I need to live in the UK for this, be a UK citizen?

Hi Skialong and welcome to Natives.

You don't need to be a UK citizen to get an NI number, (just look at all the newcomers), however I think you do need to be able to apply in person at a 'job centre' in the first instance if you are not. To be employed by a UK TO, you would also need a UK bank Account and at least a UK postal address, so they can officially apply for a E101?. It;s what enables them to 'second' you to work abroad and get reciprocal medical care and excuse you from Euro countries NI contributions.

Anybody can help on this out of interest?

I'm sort of stuck for words on this as being part of Europe (well for another little while anyway) should enable all European workers to work for a British company.
