The ability to recruit from overseas is a business-critical issue for many employers, ensuring that the workforce has the necessary skills, experience and depth of resource.

Keeping you on track with our mock compliance visits and right to work audits
Complying with sponsor duties is vital for employers with a sponsor licence, especially if you rely on recruiting migrant workers to fill skills shortages. Breaching sponsor duties or immigration rules can lead to serious financial, operational and reputational risks. The ultimate sanctions include revocation of the licence by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), as well as civil and criminal penalties.

Right to Work Checks
All employers are obliged to carry out right to work checks- and a failure to do so could lead to criminal and civil liabilities. We can help you to identify any areas of risk. For information download our flyer on fixed price right to work audits.
