Embracing Simplified Sponsorship Compliance | Nation.better
Ensure easier compliance with Home Office rules
Find out how to streamline the sponsorship process by leveraging the latest technology.
Today, the UK is experiencing severe skills shortages, with many organisations struggling to fill core job roles with homegrown talent.
Fortunately, in a world recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, the international labour market has come back, once more, as a great option to recruit the best talent to fill key positions in the country.
While this market can help you address skill shortages, however, the recruitment process for hiring foreign talent can be complex, time-consuming, and expensive.
Especially with the new round of Home Office rules—which aim to support homegrown talent while keeping the country open to talent from across the world—it has become even harder to recruit non-British employees on a workable timeline.
The rules have increased compliance requirements for employers, requiring greater effort and resources to ensure compliance with the Home Office.

If you fail to comply with these regulations, you could be subject to:
