Skilled Worker visa - Introducing the UK’s new immigration system
January 2021 saw the long advertised overhaul of the UK’s points-based immigration system, with the old Tier 2 (General) visa replaced by the Skilled Worker visa.

In this publication we highlight some of the major changes and provide top tips for employers who are unsure how to react to the changes.
