This course has been specifically designed for HR professionals and line managers who deal with recruiting and onboarding overseas employees. This is a fast-changing area where HR professionals need to keep up to date with the regular changes to immigration policy and be aware of the procedures that need to be in place to keep their business operating within the law.
