Description

Immigration Compliance Masterclass

This masterclass is relevant for HR personnel / Recruitment / CEO’s who are either applying for a PBS Licence or already hold a PBS Licence but not completely up to date with the current Home Office policies and regulations.

If your organisation is applying for a PBS Licence, it is very likely that you receive a site visit by the Home Office before they approve the your application. If you already hold a PBS Licence and not yet had a visit, you should plan to test your in-house processes and expect a site visit.

The most recent stats issued by the Home Office confirm that over the last six months - 739 site visits were conducted and the outcomes were :

  • 57% of new PBS applications declined on the basis of non-compliance
  • 39% of PBS licence holders had their licence de-listed and suspended and issued an action plan
  • 32% of PBS licence holders had their licence immediately revoked

Our Compliance Team are here to help you whether you are applying for a PBS licence or already a licence holder.

Cambridge has recruitment challenges with many companies heavily reliant on attracting skilled migrant workers.

The session will cover

  • Right to work updates inc the new rules for European nationals
  • Tier 2 visa holder compliance check list
  • PBS licence compliance
  • What to expect during a site visit and the questionnaire followed by the Home Office Officials
  • What documents you should have prepared in advance
  • On-going compliance over the 4 years your licence is live including what changes you must report to the Home Office, how to report and the timescales
  • If you are a Level 1 user / Authorising Officer – what is your role & responsibilities
  • How to update your licence with new HR contacts and users
  • How and when to apply for your annual COS allocation
  • New business visitor and off-shore workers visas

The team presenting the masterclass sessions have worked on PBS licences since they were introduced in November 2008 and regularly engage with the Home Office and attend their committees and submit feedback from companies to the Home Office concerning how to improve the PBS Licence regime.

The sessions are interactive and an opportunity to gain in-depth information.
