Live Employer Support

Employer Sponsored Visa

Following BREXIT, the UK’s employment landscape changed, the free movement of people from the EU was no longer in operation.

Acorn Recruitment in collaboration with a firm of legal experts, provides all the necessary employment support to those wishing to hire from overseas.

There are 3 categories to the Employer Sponsored Visa:

  • Temporary
  • Seasonal
  • Skilled


Temporary Visas are intended for workers who wish to come to the UK for a maximum of 12 months.


The Seasonal Worker Visa is popular throughout the South West region, this due to the areas covered: ‘edible horticulture’ and pork butchery.

A Seasonal Visa is only valid for 6 months in a 12-month period.


The Skilled Worker Visa is a popular choice for clients of Acorn Recruitment.

This option utilises the Points Based System (PBS).

Job seekers need to reach a threshold of 70 points to satisfy Visa requirements, see below.

At Acorn we work with and support a vast range of local companies, some of these are in possession of a license, some are not. Wherever a client is at, they get our full support throughout the entire process.

Being in possession of a License is simply the start of the journey, following on from that, our task to source the best available manpower for any given vacancy. Thankfully we have years of local experience and a team of hardworking, dedicated professionals.
