Want to work in the UK?
No problem if you’re a EU citizen, but what to do if you’re not?
The UK government has published a list of jobs they deem ‘critical’ to the UK economy and are willing to give those specialists a work permit (or at least will consider it when the employer applies for it)
One drawback though, you have to stick with that job until the cows come home. You’re not allowed to move jobs, as the whole circus of applying for a permit will start all over again. (And the chance of not getting one….)
So, the best thing to do is to regard a job in Europe as a temporary thing. But at least you’ll have earned enough to buy yourself a ticket back home when your contract expires. And you thought those European bureaucrats were civilised and friendly!
