Join this free webinar hosted by the Cavendish Coalition with colleagues from the Home Office to find out the latest on the EU Settlement Scheme, right to work for your EU nationals and next steps, as we fast approach the application deadline.

The Cavendish Coalition is a group of health and social care organisations united through a commitment to provide the best care to communities, patients, and residents.

The coalition recognises that the talented and diverse group of people we employ and represent are central to the success of that commitment, and that individuals from the UK, Europe and across the world, make a vital contribution to delivering care to the UK’s population. The coalition remains committed to working together to ensure a continued domestic and international pipeline of high-calibre professionals and trainees in health and social care.


Who should attend: 

Designed for overseas recruitment leads and HR, you will hear best practice from social care and NHS organisations, in addition to a question-and-answer session.
