Webinar recording: The Great Recruitment Crisis, Are Sponsor Licences Part of the Solution?

A must-see webinar if you need to know why a sponsor licence may become a vital part of your business’ recruitment strategy.

Business Immigration experts Shabana Muneer and Ruth Jowett host a webinar to discuss sponsor licences. Skills shortages across various sectors in the UK mean companies are struggling to fill vacancies from the UK labour market. Where the necessary skills are not available within the UK, employers are looking to overseas recruitment to fill skilled or specialist roles.

In this webinar we look at why a sponsor licence may become a vital part of your business’ recruitment strategy, with a focus on:

  • How skills shortages are impacting different sectors
  • The types of roles that are suitable for sponsorship – what are the applicable skills and salary thresholds?
  • The requirements for obtaining a sponsor licence – what information must be provided to the Home Office and how do you maximise the chances of a successful application?
  • Timeframes involved in being approved for a licence – why is it important to have the licence in hand?
  • Different licence structures and types – focus on Skilled Worker and Senior or Specialist Worker
  • Sponsor licence compliance duties
  •  The costs associated with sponsorship
  • Other immigration routes which may assist with recruitment needs.
