The U.K. Visa Sponsorship Assistant automates the application process for employers to receive a visa sponsor license. In a first step, the tool determines whether a business is eligible for sponsorship and the type of license that is required. It then streamlines every step of the application process and provides the user with a license rating if the sponsor requirements are fulfilled. As a result, the U.K. Visa Sponsorship Assistant generates a full report outlining which licenses are available or which next steps, if any, are required to become eligible for a specific license. The user can then progress to selecting a specific type of license. The respective application is auto populated with the previously gathered information. The open architecture of the tool allows it to be adjusted to include a company’s bespoke sponsorship requirements. Its modular logic can easily be edited to accommodate requirements for changing roles.
As UK companies increasingly offer flexible working, expand their markets internationally and talent acquisition for certain roles becomes more competitive, it becomes more and more important to hire talent from outside the U.K. and the EU. To do so, companies require a U.K. visa sponsorship license, the acquisition of which is generally a multi-step process that can easily take various months. This is not only time-consuming but also very costly and effectively keeps companies from hiring foreign talent.
With BRYTER, law firms can build an automated U.K. Visa Sponsorship Assistant that determines whether a company is eligible to apply for a sponsorship license and which license type is required for a certain role.
As a final output, the user receives a full report that outlines the eligibility for the sponsorship license, as well as the license requirements and next steps. In addition, the tool can automate the generation of required documentation. Due to the open architecture of the BRYTER platform, the tool’s modular logic can easily be tailored to specific types of sponsorship licenses and changing legal requirements.
How it works
Go through Q&A
Through a customizable and user-friendly questionnaire, all relevant information for the sponsorship application regarding the license category, the type of employment, the role, the candidate’s origin and the company’s details are gathered from the user. The inputs then determine which logic is applied to provide an assessment.
A full report including the potential license types and respective requirements is generated based on the provided information. Once a specific license is selected, application documents are auto populated. As the tool is used, a full audit trail is maintained to document and provide proof of any assessments and their results.
The open architecture of the BRYTER platform allows the application to be updated continuously in the background ensuring that the results are always in-line with the legal requirements.
