International Mobility (Employing Overseas Workers/Sponsorship Licence)

Employing overseas workers under Tier 2 and 5 Sponsorship Licence of the Points-Based System

At Davenport Solicitors, our international mobility and immigration lawyers work closely with employers in the UK to help them employ overseas workers and manage mobility and immigration issues effectively. We understand that your organisation wants to employ the best professionals for the job and we can help you achieve this.

From advising on pre-arrival formalities to advising on post-arrival formalities, we will assist you throughout the recruitment and sponsorship process. Our service is built around good communication, speedy response and practical solutions, tailored to your needs.

If you are looking to employ an overseas worker or a team of overseas workers in the UK under the Tier 2 or 5 points-based system, we can give you full assistance and guidance on what to do at each step of the sponsorship process to employ the people you choose. We are on hand to provide you with sound advice on all aspects of the sponsorship licence application. Through our audit, compliance and due diligence services, we will assist and train you to meet the sponsorship criteria in the UK and comply with Home Office requirements.
