Course overview

It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure they are employing legally. As an HR professional, are you aware of the new immigration system coming into force post 2020? Are you up to date with latest best practice recruitment techniques and processes? Every business that employs overseas nationals needs to comply with the latest rules.

This course has been specifically designed for HR professionals and line managers who deal with recruiting and onboarding overseas employees. This is a fast-changing area where HR professionals need to keep up to date with the regular changes to immigration policy and be aware of the procedures that need to be in place to keep their business operating within the law. It is also important to ensure that attention is paid to the induction and orientation of overseas workers to ensure they become an effective part of the organisation.
