Thinking of getting a job in the UK and permanent residency? You have to be super persistent as it is not going to be an easy task especially for a foreigner. In your search, you need to be thorough and leave no stone unturned.
Your search should begin with a winning resume. You need to prepare a resume that will make a suitable catch. Take your time to prepare your CV ready for the application as some of the job listings may have a limited time for you to apply.
After you are done with that, go ahead and look at some of the UK government website which have job listings and the skill shortages. A good portion of the jobs are in technology, so if you’re an IT professional or a software engineer, you should have a lot more opportunities available to you.
Below is a selection of resources for searching for employment opportunities as a foreigner. In the search bar on these sites, you should type “visa sponsorship” to get a listing of jobs that might offer sponsorship for a work visa.
- The Guardian
- The Independent
- Career Jet
- Transitions Abroad
- Go Abroad
Although these sites may not offer the desired result and sometimes responses are hard to come by but it does no harm to try.
You may also wish to get the services of travelling agents/consultants who have a reputation in job recruitment. It may cost you, but it may be your best resort especially when other plans have failed.
