At Nation.better, our support services and platform reduce the stress of sponsoring foreign workers in the UK.
While the UK technology industry has seen a rise to prominence in recent years, many tech companies today are facing severe shortages of high-calibre IT professionals to fill key development roles.
An effective way employers are trying to address this labour shortage is by turning to the incredibly resourceful international labour market.
If you’re looking to explore the international recruitment pathway to acquire the best talent and to drive innovation and success to your IT firm, here’s what you need to know about the employee sponsorship process.
Recruitment challenges technology businesses in the UK face
What’s the process of hiring international IT professionals in the UK?
Obtaining the sponsor licence
You can become a licenced sponsor by submitting an online application and relevant documents and paying a licence fee to the UKVI.
Conducting right to work checks
You must conduct right-to-work checks—physical or online—for all prospective candidates to ensure they are eligible to render professional services in the UK.
Assigning a Cos to selected employees
After selecting the most suitable candidates, you must assign a CoS to your employees to fulfil their Skilled Worker visa requirements.
Welcoming and onboarding employees
Once your employees arrive in the UK, you need to perform the relevant due diligence to meet your sponsor duties for the duration of the contracted employment period.
