Free employer’s guide to global mobility in the UK

Free employer’s guide to global mobility in the UK

In a post-Brexit, post-pandemic world, the competition between businesses to secure the best and brightest talent is greater than ever before. As a result, employers are increasingly looking beyond the resident labor market to acquire the skills they need to grow.

Over the past two years, the UK government has rolled out a series of changes to the points-based immigration system to make it easier and faster for UK businesses to recruit skilled workers from abroad. However, any business wishing to employ foreign nationals must first obtain permission from the Home Office by applying for a sponsorship licence.

To help employers understand what is required, Smith Stone Walters has created a new digital guide to sponsoring workers under two of the most common immigration routes. Our new Global mobility routes to the UK the leaflet sets out the qualification requirements and costs for both routes, together with illustrated example case studies.

Inside this free guide you will discover:

  • The sponsorship license process: Understand the qualification requirements to be approved as a home office sponsor, how to apply for a license and how much it costs.
  • The skilled worker route: Get an overview of the qualification requirements, skills and salary thresholds and how this route can lead to settlement in the UK.
  • The senior or specialist worker route: Find out how overseas businesses can use this route to transfer existing workers to an affiliated UK branch for temporary assignments.
  • How to choose a route: We compare the two routes above side by side using various example scenarios to help employers choose the most appropriate route for their overseas employees.
  • The cost factor: We set out the various immigration fees for the Home Office and explain which of these must be covered by the employer and which fees are usually paid by the visa applicant.
  • Other economic immigration routes to the UK: Discover a number of other special work routes under the points-based system.
  • Next steps for your business: Our list of key action points for businesses taking their first steps towards sponsoring migrant workers.
