Generally for citizens from other countries the situation
is not so simple, although not altogether impossible. There are schemes
which the UK Government have created which allow people from non-EU countries
to come and work in the UK, more recently immigration laws in Canada and
Australia have been relaxed to allow more skilled workers to come to those
Below are a list of
websites we've provided giving details on programmes allowing non-EU nationals
to work in the UK.
We have also provided
a guide to the Highly Skilled
Migrant Programme on this website and also a self assessment.
The websites below
give specific information on various programmes which may allow you to
work in the UK.

READ ABOUT JOB SCAMS & IDENTITY
An offer of work cannot be from an Employment
or Recruitment Agent, Agency, Consultant or Consultancy and an Agency
cannot arrange a visa and work permit for you without breaking the law.
The Law here is very clear and specific.
We are aware that there are some recruitment agencies
in Eastern and Central Europe, claiming that they can arrange work permits.
They often ask for several thousand dollars in advance, preying upon people's
desperate need to find well paid work.
We have heard several reports where people were sent
by such agencies to work in the UK and in Ireland and that these workers
were arrested and returned to their country of origin because the work
didn't exist! Even worse still, women are often promised a fantastic lifestyle
abroad, but are in fact recruited as prostitutes by the mafia. Please
The Law is very clear with few exceptions: recruitment
agencies cannot apply for work permits for people.
An exception to this is the HOPS scheme
for students which allows young people in full-time higher education
to work on farms in the UK during the summer months.
A word of warning! We have received first-hand reports
that the work is often poorly paid and students do not usually receive
what they expected. The accommodation is often very poor and is often
charged for by unscrupulous farmers.
If you are looking for a construction job, then these
are some good reasons why you might decide to register for work with us.
Furthermore, we do not charge for our services to construction
job candidates because the work is genuine and we get paid by the employers
who employ our job seekers.
