For those clients on Auto Renewal (about half of you) your new allocation for this year can be seen on the SMS – go to sponsor summary and scroll down to Tier 2 (General) and Tier 2 (ICT) CoS and the new number available will be shown – this is usually equal to the number issued last year. If you didn’t issue any, or may need more this year, then we can always request additional CoS for you.
For those not on automatic renewal, a few sponsors have been allocated one or two but generally most are starting the new year off without any. But, as stated above, if you may need any this year, then we can always request additional CoS for you. We usually need to provide detailed reasons why a CoS is required, eg: the vacancy details and/or candidate details.
Remember of course that for all out-of-country applications, we still have to request restricted CoS at the monthly panel.
