Redwing Immigration provides employment and business immigration advice to help you understand the range of immigration routes for those setting up in business, investing in the UK or established businesses wishing to employ international staff. As well as looking at your current situation, we can help you make plans for your future.
Skilled Worker and Tier 2 Visas
We can help people with Skilled Worker visas (formerly Tier 2 (General) visas), Tier 2 (Minister of Religion) and Tier 2 (Sportsperson) visas who wish to extend their visa or apply for indefinite leave to remain. We can also advise you if your employment has ended earlier than expected and, if necessary, challenge visa refusal decisions by Administrative Review.
Looking to apply for a sponsor license for your business? At Redwing Immigration, we specialise in providing consultancy services for businesses seeking to sponsor skilled workers. We are regulated to provide immigration advice and can guide your business through the application process, including navigating the compliance requirements to meet the necessary standards.
If your business is considering sponsoring employees from outside the UK, it is essential to obtain a sponsor licence first. We can assist you in determining whether this is the right step for your business and guide you through the process of obtaining and, most importantly, maintaining your sponsor licence.
Our team has extensive experience working with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), including in the creative and tech industries. We understand the unique challenges businesses face in these sectors, particularly when recruiting skilled talent from overseas. As such, we are well-equipped to provide tailored advice and support to help your business easily navigate the process.
One company our team assisted with obtaining a sponsor licence said the following about our services: “Excellent service – extremely clear, and what I assumed would be an onerous job ended up being straightforward and successful.”
The most important aspect of obtaining and maintaining a licence is showing compliance with the sponsor’s duties. When you work with us, we will conduct a thorough review to understand your business’s needs and circumstances. We will then provide you with a clear and comprehensive overview of what the Home Office would be looking for and how to stay on top of your sponsor’s duties. This will ensure that your HR practices and procedures align with the Home Office requirements for sponsors.
We understand that maintaining compliance can be a complex and time-consuming process, particularly for SMEs with limited resources. As such, we can provide you with practical guidance on record-keeping, reporting obligations, and compliance, helping you stay on top of your duties and avoid any potential issues down the line.
In addition, our support extends beyond just sponsor licences. We can also assist your staff and their families in navigating through any immigration applications. We offer a comprehensive range of services to ensure that your team is well-supported and can focus on what they do best without unnecessary disruptions or delays.
Employers of EEA Citizens With Existing Status
Even though the UK has now left the EU, certain EEA nationals and their family members will continue to have the right to remain and work in the UK without being sponsored. We can help you understand how best to help your employees and assist them if they wish to apply for proof of their residence rights or British citizenship.
Preventing Illegal Working
All UK employers must comply with immigration law, whether they sponsor overseas workers or not, and there are serious consequences if they fail to do so. These include civil penalties of up to £20,000 per employee who is employed in breach of immigration law and criminal sanctions for key personnel. Read more about this.
