Never used the immigration system? Join us to find out what employers should be doing now to prepare should they want to recruit talent from the EEA and beyond

What's changing in January 2021 and what should employers be doing to prepare?


For Scottish employers faced with skills shortages in the domestic labour market, recruiting talent from overseas is often critical to the growth of the business.

With the imminent changes to the UK immigration system as a result of Brexit, the aim of this webinar is to inform companies who have not previously had experience of the visa system and may now require to use it to access talent from EEA and further afield once the free movement of people ends.

This 60 minute webinar is aimed at Scottish based SMEs.  The webinar will be led by TalentScotland and supported by their immigration specialists Brodies LLP and will cover:

  • Overview of the new UK immigration system
  • Who is exempt from sponsorship
  • Why companies will need a sponsor licence
  • What you can do to prepare now
  • Potential Costs and time associated with this
  • Brief overview of Tier 2 sponsorship duties
  • Outline of support available through TalentScotland
