Are you an EU national living, working or studying in the UK? Are you a concerned business owner or HR professional, wondering how some of your workforce might be impacted in post-Brexit ‌Britain? Be one of the first to hear about the government’s latest proposals for EU nationals living and working in the UK post-Brexit!

Did you know that many businesses are now hiring international students to assist in business growth and to use this knowledge base to expand into international markets? Through their local knowledge these students are able to facilitate cross-border research and build bridges for future trade. At a time when there is uncertainty with regards to the access of the talent pool in Europe post-Brexit and the UK’s focus to negotiate trade deals around the world, employing an international student should be considered as part of your international and recruitment strategy.

We are delighted to announce that on 6 December we will host Thalej Vasishta, CEO and senior solicitor at Paragon Law, who will provide the latest details and Immigration Rules to employ international students.

In his extremely current and topical talk, Thalej will focus on the following areas:

  • The current Rules governing international students working during studies;
  • Visa categories that allow international students to switch status to work or do business In the UK;
  • The requirements to be satisfied by employers to be able to employ international students and EU nationals;
  • There will also be an update on the government’s latest proposals for EU nationals living and working in the UK post-Brexit.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students, businesses, HR professionals and recruiters who wish to address some current uncertainty as well as providing a great opportunity to network with others in the community.
