Obtaining a work visa without a degree

Hi there. Looking for some good advice as I'm a bit confused with the information I have received up to now. I am away to be offered a contract for work in Dammam. My department carries out specialist work, in fact we are the only people certified to do this as it is our product we work on. I have worked for the company for 10 years and have certificates provided by the company but I do not have an actual degree. How do I get around this? I'm being told by visa agencies in the U.K. That I must provide a Degree in the field of work....but there isn't one. Would my certificates from my company work? my company is trying to get me in quick under a work visit visa rather than a work one. Is this advised? It looks like I can only get my Iqama after a work visa, so is the work visit one a waste of my time? Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.
