Certificates of Sponsorship

Any non-UK/EEA national seeking entry or permission to remain in the UK for the purpose of employment will require a certificate of sponsorship from a government approved licensee such as the Wessex Deanery. If the application is successful then the sponsorship can be offered for a maximum of three years.

If you require a certificate of sponsorship in order to commence a training post within the Wessex Deanery a member of the Recruitment Team will be in contact to make arrangements to process this.  You will be required to attend an appointment with the Recruitment Team and will be advised of the paperwork you will need to submit when an appointment is made.

Please be aware that you will need to pay a fee of £170.00 for your certificate of sponsorship. Before an application is made the Recruitment Team will check whether you are likely to apply and pass the points based assessment.
