Dispelling the myths around recruiting overseas talent for UK Businesses

We are often surprised that there is a low level of awareness of UK business’s ability to recruit great talent from overseas. There are over 1.2 million vacancies in the UK and many UK organisations are struggling to find the talent they need to maintain and grow their business.

50,000 UK based organisations are successfully onboarding overseas employees, with 300,000 sponsored worker visas being approved for the year leading up to June 2022. However, 96% of UK companies are missing out.

The key myths holding organisations back

  1. My company isn’t big enough to qualify
  2. It all looks complicated and expensive
  3. It’s too difficult to manage and more red tape
  4. Overseas recruits need to be rocket scientists or have a PhD

The great news is all businesses have the opportunity to use this route to fill vacancies for over 240 job codes, ranging from chefs, stable hands, construction workers to software developers.

You just need to prove you have a genuine vacancy and a UK business set up.
