OTS Success In Tier 2 Sponsor Licence for a company operating in the London’s financial sector
Solicitor – Teni Shahiean – Partner and co-founder of OTS Solicitors
Our client operated in the financial sector and was based in London. They required a Sponsor Licence to employ a staff member already working for the organisation whose existing visa was about to expire. The employee needed to apply for a Tier 2 (General) Visa to remain in the UK and to do this our client had to sponsor him.
How we helped
Teni and her team partnered closely with the businesses HR team, advising both them and the employee on the best steps to take to ensure a successful outcome would be achieved.
An application for the Sponsor Licence was made and quickly approved.
Teni then organised a Certificate of Sponsorship for the employee who would be applying for the Tier 2 (General) Visa.
Follow up support
For organisations planning to recruit talent from outside the EU, it is imperative that they have all the supporting documentation required to make business visa applications easily accessible. At OTS Solicitors, we work with organisations over the long term, making a point of understanding their business and their commercial ambitions. This allows us to advise them of the documentation they will need to collate if they wish to grow in the future and need to make a fresh hire or seek an intra-company transfer to fill the position they have available.
