Become a Sponsor

In order to employ someone to work for you who currently lives outside of the UK, you’re likely to need a sponsor licence for your business or charity.

As a sponsor, you’ll be able to head hunt certain candidates from overseas, and you’ll have a much wider pool of talent to choose from for recruitment purposes.

Our lawyers can draft and submit the relevant documentation for you. They can advise you on your ongoing obligations as a sponsor so that you can put in place all the required arrangements.

What you will get from this service

  • A 30-minute consultation with your lawyer. You’ll discuss:
    • Whether you need workers for (i) skilled or long-term employment, (ii) temporary employment, or (iii) both
    • Your specific questions about the license and the application
    • The key information your lawyer needs from you to draft the application
  • A professionally drafted application for a sponsor license, which your solicitor will submit on your behalf
  • Filing the submission sheet
  • Filing your supporting documents
  • Drafting required affidavits or statutory declarations
  • One round of comments and changes to each of the documents
