Formed in 2010, Immigration and Nationality Services (IANS) provides expert immigration advisory services for medical professionals wanting to emigrate to the UK.
After a change in policy in 2008, a complex point-based immigration system was introduced by the UK government through which successful applicants are selected based on qualifications, occupation and language skills. A defining characteristic of this demanding system is the requirement for the applicant to have a job or study offer from an approved sponsor.
In 2011, the abolition of the work permit arrangement for senior care workers saw wide-scale changes to skills and salary levels under the points-based system, whilst also requiring employers to prove there is no suitable UK-based worker for the role.
These fast-paced, convoluted policy alterations enabled IANS to utilise their expertise connecting first class, professional migrant healthcare workers with sponsors, whilst delivering further opportunities for collaboration with care providers throughout the UK to fill care vacancies from overseas.
IANS has developed unrivalled processes for successfully and efficiently recruiting healthcare professionals in line with the multitude of complex immigration rules and the challenging international registration scheme introduced by regulatory bodies such as the NMC.
For each nursing vacancy we fill, we change one life, build one nation, care for 8 patients and save the NHS Trust £62,400 on agency costs
We get it right, first time. We get it clear, first hand. When we got it wrong, we will get it right next time. We change international recruitment of healthcare professionals and other professionals with our expertise in immigration, public & human rights laws.

Meet the team that will be helping you
I am the Principal Solicitor and head of legal at IANS Solicitors. I have been qualified for 10 years and have over 15 years experience in immigration, asylum and human rights law. In my current role, I mainly specialise in immigration law, including advocacy, but also practice in Litigation and Family law. I have dealt with many difficult and complex cases in my line of work and take pride in working hard to achieve the best outcomes for my clients. In my spare time I enjoy reading, travelling and spending quality time with friends and family.
I specialise in all aspects of Immigration and Public Law. My passion for immigration law developed due to my outstanding academic qualifications and professional experience. I have more than nine years experience in immigration law which includes working in managed migration including the Points Based System as well as assisting businesses in applying for sponsorship licence. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, swimming and have previously provided pro-bono services.
I have worked in care setting for more than 10 years supporting people with various needs, and through this experience I have gained the knowledge of taking care the individual needs of our clients. I enjoy my role as a Business Development Manager, which I can talk to people, such as care users, providers and health care workers. Also, I enjoy supporting our team with the recruitment of nurses, carers and international students who are looking to advance their career in the UK. I love spending my spare time with my family and going out for meals.
I have recently joined IANS as their OSCE trainer. I have coached overseas nurses to pass their OSCE in my previous employment and I have achieved 100% pass rate at all the OSCE centres, Ulster, Northampton and Oxford Brookers.
My Philosophy is to engage students in learning by using a problem-solving approach to care that reflects the NMC code. My aim is to encourage nurses to be “thinking doers” who can give the rationale for what, when, how and why they deliver patient care.
I am registered with NMC as a practice educator which means that I have teaching qualifications that enable me to teach both theory and clinical skills
