Case study: NA Law obtains Tier 2 Sponsorship Licence for client company in a week
A client contacted us inquiring about how he could employ a non-EEA worker for his software company. We went through the entire process at the initial consultation and advised him on the further steps he will need to take in order to maximise the chances of obtaining the licence, since it is a lengthy process.
Since the non-EEA worker fell under the shortage of occupation (SOC) list, there was no need for the company to advertise the vacancy for a minimum of 28 days. The client felt this was extremely good news and began the collation of specific documents that proved the company had the requisite record keeping and HR systems.
We thoroughly went through each document and provided feedback where necessary; we kept in contact daily with the client to update them on the collation of documents and on the legal representations we were drafting to support the application.
Once the entire application process was complete, NA Law were confident that the application was drafted as strongly as possible and this was reflected in the Home Office’s response, who took no longer than a week to approve the application. A typical turnaround time is approximately 2-3 months.
Although the client was assured that everything was in order at the time of submission, he was pleasantly surprised at the turnaround time and he was eager to start the employment process straight away. He thanked us for the thoroughness of the application.
We wished our client all the best and told him that we would be happy to assist him with any further legal assistance. If you are a company wishing to act as a sponsor, or if you wish to be sponsored by a company, do not hesitate to get in touch. Make your application a success, just like this one!
