Hiring from the EU
January 8, 2021
The way you hire from the EU has changed –
You need to register as a licensed sponsor to hire eligible people from outside the UK
Free movement has ended, and the new points-based immigration system has salary and language requirements that change the way you hire from the EU.
The new system treats EU and non-EU citizens equally and transforms the way in which employers recruit from outside the UK.
You need a sponsor licence to hire most eligible employees from outside the UK. This does not apply to Irish citizens.
Some immigration routes, such as Global Talent, are ‘unsponsored’. You don’t need a licence to hire employees with an unsponsored visa.
