Our team is here to help you understand and manage the complex nuances of immigration law.
Post-Brexit, many more employers will need to apply for a sponsor licence as this is now required in order to employ any skilled worker from outside the UK, including EU nationals. We can guide you through the sponsor licence application process and advise you on your sponsor duties.
If you are already a sponsor, we will work closely with your business, tailoring our support to the specific needs of your company. We can provide proactive full end-to-end support (including advice on the recruitment process, management of visa applications and sponsor compliance audits to ensure you are fully compliant with your sponsor duties) or ad-hoc advice on specific queries as and when needed.
