How It Works

This is a great opportunity for employers. We offer a seamless service from selection to arrival. From your perspective as an employer, you will need to be registered with Home Office and obtain a Sponsors Licence to allow you to issue a certificate of sponsorship to each candidate. If you do not already have this arranged, we can easily organise this for you. Learn More about getting a Sponsors Licence here.

WHAT IS A CERTIFICATE OF SPONSORSHIP (COS)?

To obtain a Visa for the UK each candidate must have a valid Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) for the job issued by the employer. The certificate details the candidate's name, job and salary (these are digital certificates issued via the Home Office Sponsors Portal).

Access will be granted to an employer when they have successfully obtained their Sponsors Licence. Each CoS cost £199 to issue. There is also an Immigration Skills Charge levied for each year the candidate's visa is issued. This is currently £364 per person, per year.
