Why now is the best time to find a sponsored UK job


In light of the impending changes to immigration laws in the UK, job searchers have an excellent opportunity over the next four months.

The sponsored employment market will be redefined by forthcoming regulations, which have yet to take effect.
According to travel experts, here are three reasons why the next three months are the best time to find a sponsored job in the UK.

Implementation timeline
The implementation of the new immigration rule is scheduled for Spring 2024, specifically around March 20th, which is approximately 70 days from now.

Minimum salary threshold
The minimum salary threshold is around £19,000 right now; upon implementing the new immigration rule, it will be increased to almost £39,000.

Recruitment frenzy
Employers are feeling the recruitment frenzy with unpredictable times ahead due to new rules. Unsure of these new rules, challenges in recruiting international talents make them more open to hiring.

In a labour market that is evolving rapidly, you can improve your chances of landing sponsored employment by being proactive, being aware of the complexities of the present employment market, and positioning yourself effectively.
