EU Transition - Business Readiness Series: The New Points-Based Immigration System

21 January 2021 | 13:00 - 14:00

Join us for a free Zoom webinar with Home Office officials to hear the latest updates, now the new system has gone live, and ask the questions that are top of your mind.

Minister for Future Borders and Immigration, Kevin Foster MP, will give introductory remarks and we will then be joined by Home Office officials, Dan Petriello and David Ramsbotham, who helped to design the new system. They will provide an update and take questions - so register to make sure your one is asked to the experts.

Free movement with the European Union (EU) ended on 31 December 2020 and there are new arrangements for EU citizens. 

The UK’s new Points-Based system treats EU and non-EU citizens equally and aims to attract people who can contribute to the UK’s economy. Within the system there is a route for skilled workers with an approved employer sponsor. As well as the Points-Based system there is the Global Talent Scheme and a Settlement Scheme for EU citizens who were living in the UK by 31 December 2020.

What do all of these changes mean for your organisation’s current European employees and for your future talent pipeline? Now that the new system is live scheme what’s your experience been and what questions do you have?
