The way you hire from the EU is changing

This is something important if you hire employees from the EU.

Last week the Home Office launched a new campaign to help employers prepare for the introduction of the UK’s new points-based immigration system. Free movement is ending, and the new system will introduce job, salary and language requirements that will change the way you hire from the EU.


From 1 January 2021, you will need to be a licensed sponsor to hire eligible people from outside the UK. Becoming a sponsor normally takes 8 weeks and fees apply.
As a licensed sponsor, you will be able to recruit skilled workers from anywhere in the world, provided they meet certain eligibility requirements. For further information, including full details of the sponsorship process visit here pbisemployers.campaign.gov.uk.
