The Admiral Group is one of the largest insurance providers and well known brands in the UK. It employs 7,000 people at its offices in the UK, Canada, Spain, Italy, France, US and India. We assist Admiral on the full scope of immigration which, this year, has included reviewing and advising on its graduate recruitment programme for international candidates, and ensuring it complies with the Immigration Rules in the event a non-EU candidate is appointed.
Separately, we have advised on the immigration issues arising from a US internship programme for non-UK interns. This particular matter required us to consider the programme’s implications from both a UK immigration and employment law perspective. We also worked with a third party intermediary sponsor to secure the necessary visas to entitle the interns to work in the UK.
We have also advised on switching the immigration categories which govern staff members’ leave to remain in the UK, and we have secured their new leave to remain from within the UK on the same day as we presented the applications. More recently, we have advised on the temporary transfer of highly skilled Indian nationals who are employed within the Admiral Group overseas, to Cardiff, as intra-company transfers.
"The advice provided by Blake Morgan has not only enabled Admiral to secure new international talent, but also retain and deploy our existing talent where it is required within our global network. The team has provided swift action when required and delivered a service that is truly exemplary."Wendy Sleat, Executive Recruitment Manager, Admiral Insurance
