I am considering wheatear or not I should move to London next summer. I hope you might be able to give me some guidance – or lead me on the right path (perhaps another forum).
Facts about me: Scandinavian, male, married (1 child), 30 years old.
Education: M.Sc. in comp.sci (2006), GDBA (It is a 4 year part time program at a business school that you follow while having a full time job. I am specializing in organization theory, management and business development. I’ll graduate in one year)
Job: I’ve had part-time programming jobs while studying comp.sci. When I graduated I worked 2½ years as a developer and later a project manager in a consultancy firm for major companies such as Ericsson and Siemens. I then changed job to a research & innovation company (I’ve been here for 2½ years) where I work as a project manager.
What I do well: project management (classic as well as agile), people management, process development, “userdriven innovation“.
The job I am interested in: manager for a team (5+) or project manager.
Long term goal: management position.
It would properly be easier for me to get a team lead/IT-development manager job in my home country as my educations as well as employers are well known. However – I’d really like to move to London and work there but I am worried that it will be hard to get a position on “the same level” since I am a foreigner. What do you think?
Thanks in advance,

Hi - does any of you know where it would be more appropriate to ask this question (since the response hasn't been overwhelming )?
