Stow on the Wold

New to the area

Hi All! I am coming to England in April to hopefully stay for about a year. I have traveled to the UK about 6 times in the last two years but it has been mostly for business. I absolutely fell in love with the Cotswalds and West Midlands (and London as well, but definitely can't afford it). Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can go about finding a job in these areas, being a foreigner, sufficient enough to pay for room and board? I want to get out of the rat race and do something where I get to interact with people more and have enough free time to explore. I'm pretty much up for anything. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. As info., I am 32 years old and have 11 years of international business experience ... but am willing to be a waitress if I can experience England for awhile. Thank you for your help! Cheers! Camille P.S. If you know of any VT groups that get together in this area, please let me know. I am looking forward to making new friends when I arrive!

HI Camille, I am pretty much doing the same as you want to do. I am waitressing at the moment in London. Jobs are easy to find and with your experience I dont think you should have a problem. The only thing you have to keep in mind is having your documents sorted. Try getting a student visa as it enables you to work 20 hours a week. Catering is hard work and long hours but a way of interacting with lots of ppl everyday. London can be expensive but its all relevant. Write back to me and maybe we can meet up too. Good Luck, Susana

I would write or mail to the main City Councils and ask them what the job situation is like. Very often they will send you a list of their main employers to help you along the way. Try a web search for for instance Cheltenham, Gloucester, Evesham...
