Featured experience

We recently successfully made representations to the Home Office to reinstate sponsors who had their sponsorship licences suspended.

We have also successfully conducted appeals through various channels, including the Immigration Tribunal, liaison with UKVI and Members of Parliament.

We regularly provide training to businesses on their obligation to undertake right to work checks.

We have also provided workshops for employees potentially affected by the UK’s exit from the European Union.

Brexit: Spotlight

The UK has left the European Union. We provide details on key issues that will affect businesses in the UK over the coming months and into the future. Visit our Brexit: Spotlight page for more information.

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected businesses across the globe.  The ability to hire from overseas and comply with immigration law has been hampered by lockdowns and restrictions.  There are numerous concessions in place from the Home Office for organisations that hire migrant workers, but these change at rapid pace.  We therefore have a dedicated area on our website – Covid-19 Immigration Information Hub, where we publish all COVID-19 material relating to immigration.

Webinars

We regularly host live webinars as well as share pre-recorded webinars on our Immigration playlist of our YouTube channel:
