The UK has a new post-Brexit immigration system. Employers recruiting from outside the UK must now hold a valid Home Office Sponsor Licence, and EU citizens must apply to live and work in the UK through the same immigration routes as the rest of the world.
The ATC’s new Associate Partner, Truth Legal Solicitors, specialises in helping employers navigate the complexities of applying for a Skilled Worker Sponsor Licence, and supporting them through the visa application process.
Truth Legal’s Head of Immigration Louis MacWilliam has collaborated with the ATC on Brexit and immigration for the past two years, “Brexit has fundamentally changed the recruitment landscape for many language service companies in the UK. Applying for a Home Office Sponsor Licence to continue to recruit from outside the UK can seem like a daunting task, but that’s where specialist help from someone who understands the industry can really make a difference.”
MacWilliam’s new guide to the Skilled Worker route is a comprehensive look at the new immigration route replacing the old Tier 2: https://www.truthlegal.com/legal-guides/the-new-guidance-for-applying-for-a-skilled-worker-sponsor-licence/
The ATC’s CEO Raisa McNab adds, “For many ATC members, recruitment decisions will from now on be preceded by a complex availability-cost analysis: the availability of suitably qualified and experienced candidates in the UK vs. rest of the world, and the cost of sponsoring a non-UK candidate in the UK vs. employing them in another country. Having access to language services industry knowledgeable help and advice from Truth Legal makes the whole process more manageable.”
