Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management


Who should attend

This Business immigration update - UK visa sponsorship and licence management training course is aimed at HR professionals, recruiters and employers looking to apply for a sponsor licence in the near future.


Post freedom of movement, it is even more important for UK-based employers, who cannot meet their staff needs from the local workforce, to obtain and maintain a sponsor licence to support non-EEA recruitment. This is an essential course for HR and recruitment professionals with Tier 2 or Tier 5 responsibilities. Knowledge of the points-based system is assumed.
