Ghanaian Nurse Who Moved To UK Says He Has Been Jobless For Months: “Family In Ghana Sends Me Money”

  • Atta Danquah travelled from Ghana to the UK in November 2023 with a health and care worker visa
  • Even though he was assured of a job immediately after his arrival abroad, Atta Danquah is still without a job
  • He said because he has not got a job, he is forced to ask his family members in Ghana to send him money for his upkeep

A Ghanaian nurse who relocated to the UK said he has no job yet and still depends on his family in Ghana for financial support.

Atta Danquah said he relocated with a health and care worker visa. He said the agency that helped him travel promised him a job immediately after he arrived in the UK, but that has not happened.

In an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, Atta Danquah said he left Ghana for the UK in November 2023, even though he had heard that there were no jobs.

“I moved to the UK in November 2023. I made the move even though I had heard that there were people who didn’t have jobs. But my employer told us that there were several jobs ready for us. But when we arrived, that was not the case.”

Atta Danquah explained that he could not do other jobs outside of the health sector because of the visa he travelled on.

“I travelled with a healthcare visa. This means I can only work in the health sector. I can’t work anywhere else. My family in Ghana doesn’t understand when I tell them I don’t have a job yet. Sometimes, they have to send me money so I am able to pay for my rent.”

Atta Danquah said from his experience that people who have jobs in Ghana and receive appreciable salaries should not leave for other countries in search of greener pastures.
