  • Visiting your premises in person or having a Zoom meeting so that we understand your business and market sector.
  • Advising you on whether the job you wish to recruit for is suitable in terms of Sponsor Licence compliance requirements.
  • Auditing your HR systems and identifying any weaknesses that may prevent a Sponsor Licence from being granted.
  • Helping you fill in the application form.
  • Preparing you and other relevant staff members for a pre-licence visit from the Home Office.

The Home Office will swiftly reject your application if it is incorrect or your HR systems are incapable of meeting Sponsor Licence compliance requirements. To increase your chances of success, contact Adam Law Solicitors today.

What are the different types of Sponsor Licence?

There are two types of Sponsor Licence covering:

  • ‘Workers’ – for skilled or long-term employment.
  • ‘Temporary workers’ – for specific types of temporary employment.

You can apply for a Sponsor Licence which covers both categories.

How do I know if the job I am offering is eligible for a Skilled Worker Visa?

Most UK jobs have been allocated a four-digit occupation code. To check if the job you wish to recruit for is eligible for a Skilled Worker Visa you can search through the ONS Occupation Coding Tool.

Once you have your code you can view the list of eligible jobs to see if the position you are recruiting for is included. To quickly navigate the list, use Ctrl + F to open the search function on the page.

For advice on whether the job you are recruiting for is eligible, call Adam Law Solicitors immediately.
