      To find a job in UK?

      I don’t care what I’m doing at all, will clean sewers if I have to :yakk::laugh_at:
      I’m serious

      I know in Denmark ‘we’ say there’s no work, I do believe and have experienced that there are work if you want to work, but you have to be prepared to get dirty or take what there is even if it’s not your dream job

        There seems to be work in the paper every week but I dunno how many people apply for each job. Hopefully going to be looking myself in 6 months, bit scary!

                Am thinking of moving, hard for husband to find work in Denmark because of the language, my english is “very good” and i think me getting work there will be easier but i don’t know

                Kids are getting bigger now and they can take the trip themself, very cheap flying from Denmark to UK ยฃ 20-30 on the cheap days

                But it is the last way out, we both prefer Denmark to be honest.

                  loads of jobs to look after old people in East Anglia (because there are not enough young people any more especially in the villages, they all go to London or the North and in some areas the youngest person is 45-50). Where I work we are always recruiting….

                  As EU citizens who speak English it will be much easier to get a job

                  also there might still be jobs in call centres and offices..

                    I’m sure you don’t want me there :laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at:

                    Have done different things in life

                    Cleaning, working as chef, webcoding and working with old people so I should be able to look for a bit of everything.

                    Husband have worked in security and that’s not easy to use in Denmark :crazy_diz

                      I guess it all depends on where in the UK you are thinking of going to Angel, I know some people who are struggling to find work where as others are having no problems. I think the ones who struggle only do so because they are too bone idol to look properly or wont take anything but their dream job

                        as starlaugh saysi think the job opportunities are very different in different areas…

                        here ,it is (imo) easy to get a job…

                        but perhaps further in midlands not so easy..

                                      We really want to stay in Denmark, but because of his Danish he can’t get a proper job with enough hours a week, that means that he every 3 months will get kicked out of Denmark for a period before he can come home again :hopeless:

                                      Just does my head in
                                      I would live under a rock with him if i had to ๐Ÿ˜‰

                                          Hey honey!! :group_hug

                                          sorry to hear stuff not going your way

                                          If your looking to move over here, I am guessing your recent IT course may be transferable? as it’d be a real shame for you to not utilise those skills that you’ve worked so hard for,
                                          alternativley chiefs are often needed but if you are prepaired to look at care work they are ALWAYS after nursing assistance in private and public settings – and within a range of settings (learning disabilities / mental health / older people)
                                          alternatively it may be worth thinking if there is something else that you have never before thought of persuing and going for it as it may be a whole new opportunity –

                                          (be great to meet up and have a beer if you do come over in the coming months :love:)
