Good Morning Everyone (Sorry for the long Story but have to put all the information to get the helpful replies)
i need some help and urgent advise, i am on psw and want to switch to tier 2 general category as i have a job and i fulfil all the salary and other requirement from my side (only if i get COS from my employer), As i recently started working for my new employer (because of better salary then what i was getting paid for doing same job and also fulfilling the requirements to become eligible to switch to tier 2 only if my employer get sponsorship licence which doesn’t look like they will) and it’s a very small limited company with only (3 total number of staff including director / owner of the company).
when i applied for the job i explain my situation to them about switching from psw to tier 2 general and they agreed he will apply for sponsorship licence as they don’t have to go through (labour market test) but here the problem comes as they have gone through the requirements about the sponsorship duties, responsibilities, sponsor HR system and compliance system and roles to allocate (Key Personnel, authorising officer, key contact, level 1 user, level 2 users, representatives)
As i am working for them and they are 2 bosses so 3 people including me (fresh new start of business have I have done everything I could for them to get them everything up and running and sorting the licence they need from council and operating organization they come under ) and after them going through the requirements and the process they have to go through they told me they are not interested in applying for sponsorship because they think it won’t be successful and it will leave bad mark on their company and its just too much to deal with only limited number of staff. (eg no proper HR system in place as everything is verbal or via email that do this and that and start this time and finish this time etc) but there are possibility of increasing number of staff and expanding of business but it will at least take 2 years minimum.
As they took this decision and i am kind of stuck and i don’t know what to do and it’s almost impossible to get another job in that short period of time and it will give me opportunity to go to new employer and apply for sponsorship through them to switch from psw to tier 2.
please guys does anyone have any advice regarding this, how can i convince them that it will not affect there company reputation if they don’t get sponsorship registration? Or what you guys think if they apply for sponsorship is there any chance that they will get register in sponsorship register and able to provide me with COS?
Please guys advise as i am stranded and stressed urgent responses and solution and advise needed regarding this please help.
Many Thanks in advance

Since you applied have you heard anythng frm them at all ? Didn't they write you abt the visit thy do before issuing the lisense and also there is a question which my employer wasn't sure abt and see if u can help ....
Question in the form: is your organisation currently employing migrant workers (non settled workers). Or sponsoring overseas student?
Yes or no
As I am working for them and I am on psw visa and as per my knowledge and understanding they should have answer yes to this question but I gues they have put no in there as they said we looked up in help and the explanation it shows there is migrant and non settled workers are someone who don't have right to live and work in uk.
Please advise if you have any knowledge abt it.

yes you are absolutely right we cant do anything apart from waiting and waiting and wait for there reply and i do hope you get it sorted before ur visa expires.
regarding the asnwer my employer said he put NO to it because he said you are not a migrant i am employing under tier 2 and you are not sponsored by me as you have psw visa and its is under non settled uk worker and I have not sponsored you to work for me and i dont have sponsorship license at present to employ migrant worker either which does make sense because i think the answer should be yes ..... ? what do you think is he right ? or anyone else put light on this
thanks for updating your situation and yes i am keeping eye on the gamover thread as i am sure in 3 months time i will be on same track by the ways things r looking now ......... so just pray and hope for the best .... also check your private msg
