Freedom of movement between the UK and EU will end on 1 January 2021. This is likely to impact on your business recruitment plans in the short and long term. Even if you do not trade, or recruit internationally, your business will need to prepare for change.

Join the Home Office, West Midlands Combined Authority, Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) Growth Hub and Birmingham City Council for informative updates and discussion to help you through this transition.

On Tuesday 31 March, you are invited to attend a business briefing with the Home Office to discuss what the EU Settlement Scheme means for employers and talk about the newly announced, UK points-based immigration system. They will provide an overview of the points system, shortage occupations and qualifications.

You will hear from and meet key representatives who can explain the current position. Ask questions, network and discuss issues that are directly relevant to your business and find out what help and support is available.

Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce and the GBSLEP Growth Hub will provide an update on advice and support available, and the Living Wage Foundation will be on hand to meet delegates to explain why paying the Real Living Wage is good for business.
