Tier 5 visa sponsorship for UK employers offering work experience to non-EEA nationals

The scheme

The Tier 5 Intern scheme is a Government Authorised Exchange (GAE) scheme designed specifically to allow undergraduates and graduates from overseas to gain experience working in UK industry. It provides UK employers with the scope to deploy the brightest and best talent from overseas on key initiatives and to learn key skills they can take back to their home country.

GTI Recruiting Solutions holds an A rated Tier 5 Sponsor Licence which allows us to act as an ‘over-arching sponsor’ and to issue Certificates of Sponsorship for individuals who meet our eligibility criteria.

We work directly with Employers (and their immigration advisors) to support them by providing sponsorship for non-EEA nationals they have identified for their internship programmes in the UK.

The scheme is backed by the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS), endorsed by UK Border Agency (UKBA) and administered by GTI Recruiting Solutions.

GTI Recruiting Solutions is one of the world’s leading student and graduate recruitment specialists.

This scheme was originally developed with Penningtons Manches LLP.
