    Good question. Normally T1 = support desk, T2 = 2nd line support. Never heard of T4. Suspect it's either client specific, or made up by agent.

    Made up I think

    Hmm, what's wrong the old ways of 1st line, 2nd line, 3rd line, consultant. Using Tier X surely just confuses it with the Tier 2 visa thingymajig?? Which begs the question if there is a Tier 1 visa?

    Saw this at BT a long time ago. T1 / T2 as above (LAN, Switches, CPE), T3 Strong CCNA-CCNP (Config/NOC stuff), T4 CCIE (Design Authority, tulip hits the fan support)

    But we are talking nearly 2 decades ago ....

    Back then the CCIE's commanded a decent rate, until everyone jumped on the bandwagon and started becoming CCIE/JNCIE, the rate has been diluted. I had a gig at EE 3 years back and a permie qualified as CCIE and wanted to go contracting and the best he could command was £400/day

    There is! Tier 1 Entrepreneur, Tier 1 Investor and Tier 1 Exceptional Talent. Tier 1 General and Tier 1 Post Study Work are both closed now.

    There's Tier 4 Student and Tier 5 Temporary Work as well.

    Wonder why no Tier 3?

    I'm disappointed with BT, surely this should have been Layer 1\Layer2, Layer 3 etc
