This half-day workshop is designed to provide delegates with a comprehensive guidance on the latest rule changes implemented by the government in Spring 2024, with a special emphasis on the Skilled Worker visa criteria.

These changes are crucial for employers who rely on non-UK nationals, as they will affect the processes and procedures related to sponsorship. The workshop will offer an in-depth analysis of the new rules and is an essential session for ensuring your organisation is on top of the new legislation and your processes and procedures are compliant.
