The UK officially withdrew from the European Union (EU) on the 31st of January 2020 and since then there have been various negotiations and implications for businesses in the UK. So, what does this look like from a recruitment point of view and how have we at iSupply adapted to these changes? Keep reading to find out.

End of free movement

From the 1st of January 2021, free movement for all EU nationals ended and the UK introduced a points-based immigration system that treats EU and non-EU citizens equally. Anyone coming into the UK to work will need to ensure they have the same visa requirements as other non-EU citizens.

The way you hire from the EU has changed

Unlike before, to hire eligible people from outside the UK, businesses need to register as a licensed sponsor. There are certain requirements that the people coming to work in the UK need to meet such as having a job offer from an approved sponsor that is at the required skill and salary level.

We at iSupply have successfully registered as a licensed sponsor and will continue to hire people from outside the UK where appropriate, making sure that all requirements are met.
