As COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, employees are asked to return to the office and travel resumes, the recruitment of overseas workers continues to grow. To manage this demand, the Home Office’s roadmap promises a “world-class” system that is “digital, simplified and modern”.
- Right to work checks and the introduction of new Identification Document Validation Technology (IDVT) enabling employers to use certified service providers to carry out identity checks on British and Irish citizens. What does this mean in practice and how will IDVT work with your current right to work systems?
- Any developments relating to sponsored visas following the Home Office’s biannual Statement of Changes (likely to take effect from April 2022). Will these changes affect your future recruitment of overseas workers and how should you prepare?
There will also be time for audience Q&A.
This session is aimed at anyone involved in the recruitment of workers, including HR, global mobility and talent acquisition professionals (particularly from a compliance perspective), as well as anyone holding authorising officer, key contact or level 1 user responsibilities for their organisation’s worker sponsor licence.
