I'm Indonesian. I live in Kyoto, Japan with working visa. This year I decided to find a job in London for my future career. I applied hundreds of jobs virtually and attended many skype interviews. All the companies that I interviewed with told me they couldn't sponsor me visa. Then I read on so many places, as an Indonesian, I need to find the company who sponsor me visa in order to get a work permit. I also read somewhere the companies that allowed to sponsor visa are companies with licensed (its so expensive to get this license). Is that the reason why these big companies refuse to sponsor a work permit? How to persuade the British company to sponsor me visa? Currently I'm looking for a job as Recruitment Consultant, do you think I stand a chance?
I'm also open for any advice and successful stories from non-EU member how you settle down in UK. Thank you in advance!
