I don't think so. Lot of lay off has already happened.
In Mar/ Apr, you will be in better state to know market trend again.
So apply visa and be prepared.
UK/US already declared recession so fingers cross.

Do your research by searching through online UK Job sites to see what technologies/frameworks, soft-skills, attributes, etc the prospective employers are looking for.
