It's quite a broad question / enquiry.

Is there anything specific you'd like to know?

The IA freelance market in London is historically very busy right now and average daily rates have risen from £350 pre Christmas to now around £450.

Is there any way someone from the U.S. could get into this market (and not work in Londdon)?

Thanks,

Lisa

Hi Lisa,

I recently made a move the London from the States. There's a list of job boards on LinkedIn, Yahoo! Groups and Twitter that you can subscribe. I can look them up and post the list here. As Sean mentioned, we're quite busy here. The first and probably the most important thing that you need to invest time on is to obtain a work VISA in UK. A lot of employers are reluctant to sponsor overseas talents these days. Look into the tier 1 general VISA. It seems to be the popular VISA for professionals and that's the one that I have. Just to give you another data point, from start to offer, it whole process of getting a job here took me about 8 months.
