UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) and the Greater London Authority (GLA) have decided to extend an online support service for small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) who need to recruit skilled overseas workers.
The pilot launched in September 2013 was originally for three months. It will now end on 28th February 2014.
The service, available on the GLA website, provides a step by step guide to sponsoring an overseas worker, including: a best practice guide; case studies; frequently asked questions; and a dedicated inbox for complex queries.
The site was accessed by 14,000 visitors within the first six weeks, with users benefitting from direct tailored support.
