The Scale-up visa gives businesses another post-Brexit route to bring talent to the UK
Ross Kennedy, Senior Client Manager at Vanessa Ganguin Immigration Law, on the latest work immigration route launched to make it easier for UK firms to hire skilled staff from all over the world.
The Scale-up visa promises to make it cheaper and easier for fast-growing firms in the UK to sponsor and hire highly skilled migrants.
Launching the new work visa, immigration minister Kevin Foster said it would enable businesses “to focus on their growth and innovation by giving them more freedom to bring in the diverse skills and experience they need, making them more attractive on an international stage.”
The UK’s £1 trillion scale-up sector relies heavily on international talent to continue growing. It’s no secret that skills shortages have blighted firms of all sizes of late. So how will this newly launched visa help and who will be able to make use of it?
