Businesses seeking to employ EU or non-EU workers must first obtain a sponsor licence to allow them to sponsor and employ migrant workers, for example under the Skilled Worker, Scale-up or the Global Mobility visa routes.

Our business immigration team has several years of experience in assisting a wide variety of organisations to successfully and efficiently acquire their sponsor licence. We assist clients from SMEs and family-run businesses to multi-national organisations, across several sectors, including the care, hospitality and financial sectors.

Obtaining and maintaining a sponsor licence is a very complex area of immigration law. The consequences of non-compliance with the sponsor licence regime are varied, often with serious and long-lasting ramifications for, not only the business, but also the individuals involved. Our team aims to ensure our clients are placed in the best position to comply with their sponsorship duties.

We advise clients in all areas of sponsor licensing, including:

  • sponsor licence applications and renewals;
  • sponsor licence maintenance, including Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) requests;
  • sponsor licence compliance, including mock audits;
  • challenging sponsor licence suspensions or revocations; and
  • right to work checks and the prevention of illegal working.
