We are pleased to have been selected by the Government to be an operator of the Seasonal Worker Scheme (SWS) since its inception in 2019. Our selection is testament to the success of the 2-year pilot, the strength and depth of our teams supported by extensive systems and processes designed to improve efficiencies and protect our workforce. Hiring skilled workers is also a key part of our recruitment systems.

Seasonal Worker Visa Information

Pro-Force never charges for work finding services or visa application support. If you are asked to pay Pro-Force, you should not pay as it is likely a fake person.

Seasonal workers must only be employed for seasonal roles. For this visa route, seasonal work is defined as ‘employment which fluctuates or is restricted according to the season or time of the year.’

You should NEVER pay any recruitment fees in order to take part in the SWS scheme. If someone has approached you and is asking you to pay fees, this is not genuine. You should only ever pay for your visa (£298), processing fees with the visa processing centre (if appropriate) and your travel ticket.
It is also important that you understand the following:
  • We only have a limited number of Certificates of Sponsorship each year;

Skilled Workers

In March 2022, Pro-Force launched our Skilled Workers division, connecting clients globally with the skills so desperately still in great demand in the UK.

The skilled worker scheme gives companies access to Visa’s for up to 5 years, for roles that feature on the Home Office eligible occupations list and Pro-Force are already working with clients to recruit for a variety of sectors such as poultry, meat, fish, engineering, agriculture and horticulture.

  • have a ‘certificate of sponsorship’ from your employer with information about the role they’ve been offered in the UK

  • do a job that’s on the list of eligible occupations

  • be paid a minimum salary of £38,700 per annum, equating to at least £15.88 per hour,  meeting or exceeding the relevant going rate for the occupation code.

We, as Stronger Together Business partners, since its establishment in 2014, work to ensure that all our staff are equipped with the skills they need to recognise signs of modern slavery and forced labour within our business. Our systems and processes ensure that we mitigate these risks through, for example, directly recruiting in the home country, avoiding the risk of 3rd party agents and their fees, having multilingual independent help line advertised on all our sites, ensuring that workers are educated in their rights and the fact that we have a very open door policy. Under the pilot scheme we will also be reporting weekly to the Home Office on worker's pay, rates, holiday, sickness etc ensuring providing fully transparent evidence that workers are being paid correctly, on time and in accordance with UK employment law.
