HR Department Training on UK Immigration Law – Fixed Fee HR Immigration Advice

Are you concerned about keeping your internal Human Resources and immigration team up-to-date with the latest legislation and sponsor licence duties?


We are passionate about continual development and improving understanding within organisations who deal with visas and immigration. Managing sponsor licences, issuing Certificates of Sponsorship and submitting compliant applications, including all of the relevant supporting documents, can be extremely difficult for even a seasoned HR professional. It is key to not only keep on top of current legislation, but to also forecast potential changes and begin to get a feel for the route corporate immigration will follow within the UK in the near future. At Migrate UK, we harness our belief in learning and education through seminars, forums and bespoke training packages.

Our experienced team of trainers can complement your staff’s own skills and knowledge, providing information to those working in immigration, as and when it is needed. Our training is tailormade to your individual needs and we are capable of training individuals, as well as small or large groups by means of classroom and on-line teaching methods, as well as seminars and forums.

We understand the difficulty in remaining compliant with ever-changing regulations, some of which are rarely publicised. The way in which immigration is handled by the media in the UK renders it very difficult to understand the changes relating to corporate migration and the implications of these for staff and recruitment strategies. Our training services are carried out by OISC qualified consultants who have been working with the Points Based System since its inception in 2008 and are used to dealing with sponsor licence compliance issues and knowledge gaps within HR departments.

We aim to make our training as flexible and as captivating as possible, through the use of real life case studies and practice audits.

Seminars and forums

We run regular seminars and forums throughout the year. They offer access to current and anticipated immigration policy.

Seminars are held with two of our partners, Crossland Employment Solicitors and the Career Boutique. The seminars offer an in-depth look at current employment and corporate immigration topics and legislation. They also provide an opportunity to network and to pose questions to employment solicitors, recruitment consultant and immigration lawyers.

Forums are designed for a smaller group, more informal and attendees collectively discuss key topics in corporate immigration, the problems they face and what this means for their business. The forums are an extremely productive and highly dynamic environment that can help HR professionals generate innovative solutions suited to their organisation’s needs.
