Location: The Aberdeen Altens Hotel, Souterhead Road, Aberdeen AB12 3LF

Speakers: Jack Freeland, Senior Solicitor Immigration, Shepherd and Wedderburn LLP

In December Productivity Club will focus on skills and recruitment channels.

Most of the SME organisations we have spoken to lately, highlighted skills shortages and recruitment challenges as current issues for their businesses.

What if there were ways to diversify recruitment channels and to develop people skills?

In this session we will be talking about the UK Visa sponsorship for employers. We will hear from an organisation that went through the process about the experience, challenges, outcomes and tips. Jack Freeland, Senior Solicitor at Shepherd and Wedderburn specialising in immigration will share insights into the sponsorship process for employers.
