24 February 2015
Deloitte, the business advisory firm, today announces Jurga McCluskey has joined as partner and head of Deloitte's UK immigration practice.
Jurga joins from PwC Legal LLP where she was Head of Private Clients and the lead on a number of key corporate clients. Prior to this, she spent four years with Fragomen LLP.
Matt Ellis, UK Leader of Deloitte’s Global Employer Services practice, said: “We are delighted to have Jurga on board. She is well known and highly respected by the industry. Jurga has significant experience in working with blue-chip corporate clients, leading global teams and providing both strategic corporate advice to multinational companies.
“We have ambitious plans to double the size of the immigration practice in the next two years. This is an area of focus for businesses wanting to get it right and they need access to skills not otherwise available. Immigration policy needs to be simplified and have broad appeal to employers, and those legitimately coming to work or study here. Companies increasingly operate in a borderless way and there is a huge demand for immigration advice as companies need to mobilise their workforce at a moment’s notice.”
Jurga McCluskey adds: “I am delighted to be joining Deloitte and building on an already successful business. I look forward to advising Deloitte’s clients on how to combine immigration compliance with their business needs in the most efficient way.”
Jurga has regularly advised corporate multinationals in a number of industries, including engineering, oil and gas, and financial services, on immigration corporate governance and compliance audits. She has been involved in coordinating emergency evacuation projects and has expertise on business continuity issues from an immigration perspective.
