You’ll usually need a sponsor licence to employ someone to work for you from outside the UK. This includes citizens of the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland who arrived in the UK after 31 December 2020. This includes unpaid work like running a charity.
To gain a sponsor licence you will need to make a formal application. This must be submitted to the Home Office. If granted the licence will be valid for 4 years, and you will be given a licence rating if your application is successful. If at any time you do not meet your responsibilities as a sponsor, you may lose your licence. To ensure that the application is fully prepared and submitted correctly, it is a best to seek professional advice at an early stage.
