      Recruiting International Talent

      Thursday, December 3, 2015 The Entrepreneurs Network, London

      Recruiting International Talent: How Start-Ups & Scale-Ups Can Navigate Britain’s Visa Regime

      In survey after survey, finding the right talent is one of the most important issues for Britain’s business leaders. While better education and training may help plug the gap in the long term, skilled immigration is vital in the short term.

      While large companies can throw money, lawyers and HR directors at visa problems, start-ups and scale-ups are understandably daunted by the prospect of navigating the complex visa regime.

      This event is aimed principally at ambitious entrepreneurs looking to access talent from outside the EU. You’ll get an overview of the different visa options available; sponsorship licence and its costs and paperwork; and options for employers that can’t or don’t want to sponsor.

      Speakers
      Josephine Goube is director of partnerships at web portal Migreat, which helps migrants move and settle in Europe. Josephine leads the EU’s immigration experts group to advise on the reform of visa rules for foreign entrepreneurs in Europe and co-director of Girls in Tech.

      Jonathan Hendry is an immigration solicitor and founder of Hendry Associates. Jonathan is a Level 3 OISC adviser, with 14 years of experience specialising in immigration law.

      Zenia Chopra is the head of sales and marketing at Access Tier 5, which is part of AIESEC UK, the world’s largest youth-led organisation. Zenia is an immigration expert, speaking regularly at universities and conferences up and down the country about the Tier 5 visa route.
