Hi,

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,
/Rost

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

Thanks.

The most likley explanation is that nobody here knows the job market in London.
