Business Imigration

Business Imigration

Immigration law is becoming stricter, making it harder for UK businesses to hire migrants to work and live in the UK. Our solicitors can help your business comply with complex immigration laws. We also help migrants looking to invest or start a business in the UK.

Any immigration process is stressful and following the rules is vital to avoid penalty fees or legal action. We work with you to understand your needs and put a bespoke strategy in place that protects your business and employees.

What Business Immigration Issues Could I Face?

Businesses employing migrant workers need to make sure they have the correct sponsorship licence. Applying for and maintaining these licences takes time and resources. Businesses can face issues if they don’t follow the correct process, including:

  • Applying for the wrong sponsorship licences and certificates of sponsorship
  • Having a sponsor licence refused, suspended or revoked
  • Failing to comply with the prevention of illegal working regulations.

We’ve worked with many businesses and employees with complex immigration issues. Our lawyers have a detailed knowledge of immigration law and a long-standing relationship with the Home Office. We’ll give you practical advice to help make your immigration experience less time consuming and stressful.

Our immigration lawyers can assess your business and advise the best way forward to prepare for Brexit. We’ll also help you and your dependants apply for a permanent residency permit to stay in the UK.

Global Citizenship

Global Citizenship

Many organisations and universities refer to this phenomenon as enhancing “global citizenship”, or creating “global citizens”, and encourage a variety of international activities.

What is a Global Citizen?

A global citizen is an individual who is aware of the world and has a sense of their role in it.

They respect and value diversity and work to understand and add to efforts to achieve social development goals. Global citizens participate in communities at all levels (from local to global) and take responsibility for their actions and interactions with members of their own community and communities abroad.

To become a global citizen, you’ll have to be creative, flexible, dedicated and proactive. Global citizens get involved as members of  the international community and are committed to  building on this community in a meaningful and positive way.

This means that aspiring global citizens need to develop skills related to problem-solving, decision-making, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. These five skills are becoming more and more essential to success in the workplace, as well as life in general, and can add to both your personal and professional development in a big way.

Why Become a Global Citizen?

Global citizenship is becoming a widespread topic in higher education. This is because it deals with issues of global interdependence, diversity of identities and cultures, sustainable development, peace and conflict, and inequities related to power, resources, and respect.

The world is becoming more globalised every day, with media and technology allowing ideas and cultures to cross borders faster than ever before. What’s more, international politics and international relations create systems in which we all live, and we’re all responsible for the health and future of the planet.

This means that twenty-first century students need to be prepared so that they can succeed in this quickly developing world, both professionally and personally.

So it’s no surprise that universities are looking to “internationalise” their campuses by increasing the international exposure their students have access to.

How to Brcome a Global Citizen?
