Once you have been granted a sponsor licence, there are many duties you must comply with or you risk having your licence being downgraded or revoked. This is why it’s essential to not only understand what your duties will be, but also to make sure you continue to satisfy them after your licence has been approved.
Your HR department must be able to handle all these duties as part of your sponsorship licence compliance. However, we appreciate this adds considerably to their workload. To ease their burden and ensure you comply from the outset, we’ll provide our expert support to help you manage the sponsorship process.
One of the ways we can do this is by acting as your appointed Level 1 or Level 2 user. A Level 1 User manages the Home Office Sponsorship Management System (SMS), which must monitor the daily activities and records of non-EEA nationals working for you. You can have more than one Level 1 user, but one of them must be an employee. A Level 2 user is optional; they also use the SMS, but have less access than a Level 1 user. A Level 2 user doesn’t have to be an employee.
Our support for helping you manage your sponsor licence is ongoing, and both proactive and reactive. We’ll step in if we see a potential problem, and respond quickly whenever you need advice.
