Successful Sponsor Licence Application for a Care Home
Mr X is the Director of a care agency based in Chester.
He employs over 70 staff and is looking to expand his services to meet the demands of the industry.
Due to the shortage of skilled carers in the UK, he is keen to ensure that his business is equipped to employ candidates from outside the UK.
In the short term, he is in desperate need of a Recruitment Lead to help with growing his team.
How did A Y & J Solicitors help the Home Care Agency?
A Y & J Solicitors’ team of UK immigration lawyers advised Mr X on the necessary documents for his sponsor licence application and provided detailed support with the requirements of the application.
A Y & J Solicitors ensured that accurate representations were submitted to support the application and also provided Mr X with the guidance needed to be ready for a possible compliance visit or request for further information from the Home Office.
Mr X owned more than one business based at the same address. Taking a 360 approach to the service, A Y & J Solicitors provided an assessment of whether Mr X could apply to link other entities to the licence and advised on the options.
Mr X relied on A Y & J Solicitors to ensure that the application met all the requirements and to support him with understanding the general sponsorship rules, so that he and his team would be ready to start recruiting candidates as soon as his licence was granted.
Ms X’s sponsor licence application was approved within the stated service standards and Mr X can now go on to sponsor for his preferred candidate for the Recruitment Lead role and can also to look to building his team of care staff from a wider pool of candidates.
