Work permits were document required by foreign nationals seeking to come to the United Kingdom for employment purposes. The work permit could either be obtained from outside the UK or within the country after entry. However with the introduction of the Tier groups under the Points Based System work permits are no longer granted to people outside the European Union who want to come to the UK for employment purposes. The main difference between entry under the Tier groups and work permits is that individuals must now score a minimum number of points within the category they want to enter the country under, so for general skilled labour, you must achieve a minimum number of points under this category otherwise your application will not be granted.
You could obtain a UK Work permit by applying directly to the Home Office or with the help of an immigration solicitor. UK work permits no longer apply because they have been replaced with Tier groups under the points based system, which means an applicant has to achieve a certain amount of points of they want to come to or remain in the United Kingdom for employment. For qualification under the points based system unlike the UK work permit means that applicants do not only require an offer of employment by a UK based employer but they must have achieved a level of academic qualification, the salary must be of a certain amount and the applicant must also have a minimum level of funds for maintenance.
