Our Immigration Services

Sponsor licence assistance

A sponsorship license is a key requirement for employers looking to sponsor overseas workers. We provide a full application service covering:

  • Selecting the most appropriate license
  • Completing the online application form
  • Advising on the evidence required for the application
  • Drafting the supporting letter
  • Advising on audit questions to ensure you are up to date and in the best position to obtain a license
  • Advising on how to request and assign a Certificate of Sponsorship
  • Ad hoc questions throughout the process, including those from the individual and their visa application
  • Advising on reporting and record-keeping duties


Helping you navigate sponsorship with a fixed subscription plan

If your workplace is looking to sponsor overseas workers, our new comprehensive retained service could be the solution. This inclusive package offers:

  • Sponsor compliance audit
  • Training you and your team on the sponsored work routes and right to work obligations
  • Support with creating and assigning certificates of sponsorship – including skilled workers, global mobility visas, and ministers of religion
  • Support with navigating the Sponsor Management System and sponsor duties
  • Advice on any situations which may arise through the year.

Alternatively, opt for individual one-off services tailored to suit your specific needs.

Business visitors from abroad

Working in a globally connected world means that colleagues or other business partners may need to visit your UK-based organisation. We can support you in:

  • Suitable visa options for your planned trip
  • Evidence to support your visit visa application
  • Offshore worker visa issues

Setting up business in the UK

The processes and documentation required for immigration-related practices aren’t always immediately evident to entrepreneurs. We can help ensure that your startup is compliant with immigration practices from the get-go. We can assist you with:

  • Advice on appropriate visa routes
  • Support throughout the process of application
  • Ongoing assistance once you are set up in the UK, hand-in-hand with our employment law support.

Right to Work checks

When it comes to recruitment, employers must confirm that anyone taking up employment with them has the right to work in the UK. We can support you in ensuring compliance with legal obligations when employing migrant workers. Our range of services in this area include:

Right to Work virtual training:
  • Covering how to conduct checks and maintain records, as well as providing guidance on managing tricky situations, such as expired leave or initial check errors.
  • We actively encourage questions throughout the session to help address the challenges you may be facing.
Right to Work audits for ongoing compliance

Our experts can carry out an audit on selected employee files, offering advice on rectifying any issues that you may encounter and ensuring continued compliance.

Advice on difficult Right to Work cases

We offer specialist employment advice using knowledge of the immigration system and employment law, including managing complicated dismissal processes where employees do not have the right to work.

Our fees

Transparent fees for our market-leading immigration employment law support

“Together with several members of our HR team, I attended esphr’s immigration sponsor license training course recently. It was a really enjoyable session and we found it incredibly useful, given the constant changes to immigration legislation over the last couple of years. The training not only covered what we need to know as sponsors, but it was also tailored to our specific business needs. We took away some actionable steps to ensure we’re being compliant and meeting our legal obligations.”

Daniel Burgess, Employee Relations Manager at Rathbones Group
