Resources for a person with Skilled Worker Visa to remain in the UK

Asking on behalf of a friend of a friend, based in York, UK: They are in trouble because it looks like the fintech business they work for is about to go under. This would be bad in itself, but - they are from China and they need this job or a similar one to be able to stay in the UK with a valid visa. It would absolutely crush them if they had to go back.

They got this news after moving and signing a 1 year contract for a place to live. As it is, their pay (along with everyone else's) has gone unpaid while the company presumably tries to avoid insolvency.

My understanding is they need to find a job with a business approved by the Home Office to offer this visa (Skilled Worker Visa). Their background is in marketing but in this latest job I think they were doing something closer to managing client accounts or something like that.

In their CV they list their experience as:
- Transaction Monitoring Manager (Finance)
- Compliance Officer & Transaction Monitoring (Finance)
- Project Manager (China Brands Group)
- Research and Development Manager (for a fashion brand)
Also an M.Sc in Global Marketing, AdvDip in Business Administration, and Bachelor of Design in Product Design.

Does anyone know any businesses in the UK or have any contacts that might help? Or have any advice for navigating this situation?
