Sponsoring overseas workers.

If your company sponsors overseas workers and you are the person tasked with taking care of arrangements for those employees, do you feel confused, overwhelmed, unsure of exactly what to do and when? If so, don’t worry, this is completely normal and you are not alone!

Sponsoring workers under the points based system can be straight-forward – if the planets align oh so perfectly - but the system we’re operating within is very complex. With a myriad of Home Office rules and regulations, which frequently change, it is no wonder that some employers find CoS requests or visa applications rejected and aren’t really sure what went wrong.

We can offer support to Level 1 users, HR professionals or other managers who are responsible for ensuring your company’s sponsor licence is operated correctly. With indications being that post-Brexit any EU nationals not qualifying for Settled Status will be subject to the same points based sponsorship as currently exists for non-EEA nationals, this is something which you will now more than ever want to feel fully confident about.

We offer an in-depth training session, designed for one-to-one delivery, or very small groups (of 4-5 people). It is aimed at Level 1 users of the online Sponsor Management System – in other words, those who are responsible for assigning Certificates of Sponsorship and generally managing the migrant workers/sponsor licence duties for the business. This half-day session is very detailed and interactive and will provide you with the detailed knowledge you need to be able to do this effectively and in accordance with Home Office rules. It is available at a fixed-price which includes a detailed guidance pack and follow up legal support.

Although this session is specifically for clients who hold a Tier 2 (General) sponsor licence, do talk to us if you're looking for support with Tier 2 (ICT) or Tier 5.
