Formed in 2010, Immigration and Nationality Services (IANS) started providing expert immigration advisory services for skilled workers seeking to enter or remain in the United Kingdom under Tier 2 Sponsorship route.
When the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) introduced in 2014 the 2-Part Test of Competence registration scheme for overseas trained nurses, IANS saw an opportunity to extend its expertise in assisting care providers to obtain a Sponsor Licence to employ international nurses. Thus, the recruitment service was created.
Early in 2015, a high percentage of nurses were being removed because of failing the Objective Structure Clinical Examination (OSCE) which prompted IANS to develop its own OSCE training to fix this problem.
IANS over the years have developed a unique & effective international recruitment process that guarantees deployment of nurses within 4-6 weeks from start to finish, when everyone else takes up to 12 months to do the same. Such service has allowed thousands of care providers eliminate their agency costs and fill the gaps in their workforce over a short period of time.
We always strategise, plan, execute and evaluate our projects striving for excellence.
Connect people with opportunities and provide them with tools & platforms to realise their dreams and better tomorrow.
I’m the Director & Head Solicitor at IANS Solicitors. I am 11 years post-qualified with 10 years-experience in immigration, asylum and human rights law. I also specialise in points-based migration, in particular Tier 2 applications and sponsor license applications. At IANS, our aim is, and we are happy to provide a first-class legal service and pride ourselves on our client care and attention to detail, which results in the majority of our cases being successful.
Having worked in a care setting for more than 10 years supporting people with various needs, I gained better understanding of how to improve services around clients' needs and have translated these skills into my current role. I'm very proud to be with a team that appreciates and respects our values. We aim to mirror these values in everything we do.
With more than 4 years of managing clients relationships, I have developed key skills and qualities that are essential to my current undertakings. I follow processes, improve existing ones, and takes initiative to create new ones if necessary. I also thrive in doing something new.
My background in law has provided me with all the key skills that I need to be effective in my current role. I have developed a good pair of eyes to identify arising business opportunities and confidence to start and build long term relationships with prospects.
After the immigration officers at UK airports, I am the first person our international nurses see and meet and I ensure they get not only the warmest welcome but also the best service at their first face to face contact with IANS. I love taking people to their destinations.
Immigration And Nationality Services was formed in Apr 2010 in Southgate, London N14 to provide immigration services to migrants wishing to enter or remain in the UK to work. It found a niche in the healthcare sector helping care providers obtain sponsor licences and international nurses permission to work for these sponsors.
"I spent over 20,000 pounds on agency nurses in July, so when IANS nurses coming in, it costs me half of the amount of that money. Plus, I got the reliable nurses, which I can train them all the way I want with my care home."
