Does anyone know which agencies are more likely to sponsor work visas (especially for entry-level roles)?

I'm about to graduate from uni and I have an internship this summer. Gonna try my hardest to get a return offer + visa but will still be looking around for full-time roles. Please offer any advice!

I'd say chances are quite low as it's a bit of a process and eats into agency resources. If you do get an offer, you'd most likely have to foot the bill which will be £5-7k+ depending on whether lawyers get involved; I paid for my partner's dependent visa.

Good luck though!

It's very hard to get an entre level job. I'd say it's even harder to get one when you need a visa. If I were you, I would put that from my pocket and start right now, so when you have it you can get a job just like any other British citizen.

I'm thinking of applying for a 2 year visa now. Do you think it would be possible to get a sponsorship after 2 years of experience?

You might be better to get a visa via a different route. Like the youth mobility visa. Or extend your student visa.

OP this is exactly what I did. I went from YMS to getting a sponsorship from my then agency. But it is pretty much unheard of; with two years under your belt, you’ll have options to pivot out agency land with sponsorship.

Hey guys,

Quick question:

Please suggest from the POV of a digital agency recruiter:

I am a performance-focussed digital marketer with 8 yrs of experience. I have run my agency and worked in large agencies like Dentsu Aegis, in lndia.

I got to work with 100+ businesses in different industries across multiple countries, in my tenure till now.

I am now in Canada and on Student Visa till April, after which I'll be on work permit.

Should I begin applying for jobs now or wait out?

Thank you!

So the recruiter agreed and will be coming back this week with a revised offer. I'm not sure how much I can negotiate after accepting.
