Sponsorship License Application

As a business that wishes to employ foreign workers you must be aware of the importance of making a strong Sponsorship License application, as this is key to employing such workers from outside the European Economic Area (EEA). You will require a Sponsor License even if it is to employ worker for unpaid or charity work.

Applications for a Sponsor License will need to be made to Sponsor individuals under the Tier 2 or Tier 5 points-based visa categories. You will need to decide on the individual within the organisation who will mange the sponsorship as the company should have a designated individual. Your application can be made online or by post.

You can submit a Sponsor Licence renewal application using the Sponsorship Management System. Prior to this, you should keep all information on your current visa employees updated. You will be required to demonstrate that you have done this when you apply to renew your Sponsor Licence.

We will conduct an initial telephone call with your designated sponsor contact and discuss your options. We will aim to have your Sponsorship License issued promptly and include a Letter of Representation with your application to report on your business to ensure a strong application is being submitted. One of our experts will manage the whole process and continue to offer support once your license has been granted to aid with the Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) and other issues you may have to ensure the smooth running of recruitment within your organization. If required, we will visit you to accommodate your busy schedules, saving you the trip to visit us. We work with each client on an individual basis, which is what brings our clients back to us.
