In  this short article, James Perrott, who leads the UK immigration and European Mobility practice at Mayer Brown, considers the particular challenges involved in sponsoring nannies to work in the UK under the Skilled Worker route.  James looks at why the current Overseas Domestic Worker route is not suitable for families looking to bring nannies to the UK long-term, who can sponsor nannies to work in the UK, the situations where it might be possible for companies to sponsor nannies to work in the UK, and the important points to consider when making these sponsorship applications.
