Due to the current economic situation in the UK, changes have been announced to make it more difficult to meet the requirements of the Points Based System, forcing employers to offer British jobs through Job Centre Plus before recruiting foreign workers. However
migration continues to play an important role and UK employer are still looking abroad to recruit both skilled and unskilled labour. Migrant workers can provide “fresh ideas, approaches and experience”, which, in these times of great economic uncertainty, are attributes you cannot afford to miss.
Symposium Events’ 8th Employing and Vetting Non-UK Nationals conference is the only event to give you comprehensive advice on the latest legislative demands, as well as practical analysis on planning and executing effective recruitment and integration strategies that can help your company to avoid costly penalties.
