Sponsored workers’ roles in the future immigration system

What roles will be eligible for sponsorship in future? Car mechanics, electricians, plumbers and more! Immigration and Global Mobility team members Samar Shams and Talitha Degwa discuss the reduction of the skill level for jobs eligible to be filled by a sponsored non-UK worker.


Many businesses do not yet realise that this skill-level reduction is relevant for a lot of roles that they have trouble filling. Many businesses that never considered sponsorship previously might be interested in applying for a sponsor licence now. With the expectation that the new rules will be published soon, the future immigration system is right around the corner.
