My name is Daniel Burnett and I will be moving to Scotland in January which is only a short time away. I was wondering I anyone on here would be able to assist me with finding work when I arrive or things that I may do before I arrive. Any information will be of help.

Thanks in Advance
Daniel Burnett

Hi Daniel,

Hopefully these websites may be of assistance to you.
They are general websites but there are more which are industry sector specific.

Before planning to come and work in the UK, you should check the government employment criteria for eligibility to live and work here. If you are permitted, the first thing that you need to obtain is a National Insurance Number and to get this you need to have a UK address. All very official and complicated!

Hope that this helps.

If you are prepared to work, there is no shortage of jobs in Aberdeen. The most lucrative employment is in the oil services sector where there is an ongoing shortage of skilled/experienced labour. There are websites which focus on oil-related employment.

The city has enjoyed a sustained boom that has lasted nearly 40 years but on the down side, accommodation and living costs are expensive. A lot of the low-paid jobs are currently being filled by migrant workers from Eastern Europe. Minimum statutory wages work out at under UKú7.00 per hour and upper limits are in excess of UKú1500 per day for highly sought-after staff (plus a package of expenses, car etc).
