Leveraging overseas talent to grow your business

29th November 2022

One of the key themes Fragomen is seeing in the Sheffield City Region and beyond is the skills shortage–and specifically how the limited access to ongoing challenges accessing qualified talent have has significantly impacted businesses.

Fragomen can help you navigate the UK immigration system, allowing you to hire the people you need with the right skills.

The following is a list of questions we frequently receive from clients. If you have these or any other queries, please email sheffieldinfo@fragomen.com and we will be happy to discuss how we can help you.

  • How can I recruit foreign graduates from the local universities and colleges?
  • How long can a sponsored worker stay with me for?
  • How can I hire foreign nationals on internships and work experience programmes?
  • How can I send employees overseas to work or conduct business trips?
  • Can these individuals stay on with our firm afterwards?
  • Can dependants of visa holders live and work in the UK?
  • How can I hire someone who has a visa for another UK employer?
  • What are the options for setting up my own company in the region as a foreign national?
  • How much do UK Sponsor Licences and visas cost? What permission do I need to study in the UK?
