Securing skills in the Care sector

The Care sector is facing unprecedented challenges in securing talent.

There is dire staff shortage in the UK care sector in 2023. The House of Commons Health and Social Care Committee report 2022-2023 has described it as a “workforce crisis”. Today, adult social care vacancy numbers remain over 150,000, with 99% of care workers sponsored for work visas in the UK coming from non-EU countries, which can lead to a visa management and right to work headache for the sector.

In early 2024 fines for right to work non-compliance are due to triple to up to £60,000 per employee. It is vital to ensure right to work processes are fully compliant to avoid a crippling fine.

In this webinar, our specialised Immigration team will share their expertise and insights on how to navigate the challenges of right to work legislation.
