Video: Recruiting from overseas – an immigration law update

The skilled labour shortage in the UK is having a detrimental effect on countless businesses across many sectors.

As a result, increasing numbers of employers are looking to recruit staff from overseas in order to fill these gaps in their workforce. It is now nearly a year since the UK’s immigration system was overhauled to apply to both EU and non-EU workers.

In this webinar our immigration experts discussed:

  • The impact of the new UK immigration system;
  • Who needs a visa to work in the UK;
  • How to apply for a sponsor licence to sponsor non-UK nationals for a visa;
  • What you need to know about employing individuals who require a visa;
  • Alternative visa types that do not require sponsorship.
