BWF Member? Your Thoughts On The Immigration White Paper & Brexit
Are you a BWF Member? Your Thoughts On The Immigration White Paper & Brexit.
In December 2018 the government released a white paper on the UK’s future skills-based immigration system.
If you source labour from outside of the UK then this may have implications on your business.
Leaving the EU will end free movement and ensure full control of the border. A new single immigration system has been designed based on skills and talent.
The new system includes:
A skilled workers route open to all nationalities.
Lowering of the skills threshold on the skilled worker’s route to include medium-skilled workers.
No cap on numbers on the skilled worker’s route. This means that business will be able to hire any suitably qualified migrant.
The abolition of the resident labour market test.
A new time-limited route for temporary short term workers of all skill levels. This includes seasonal low skilled workers.
An extension to the post-study period for international students.
