How have you found the job market over there ?
Personally I've found it okay but it seems there are many who would disagree. Guess it depends what industry you're in (IT industry is fairly boyant but I'm not sure about everything else). What sort of thing are you looking for?

I'm in Cororate Banking / Finance. I was pretty much offered a job when I came over in May. It wasn't a great job, but I'm realistic enough to know that you need to take steps backwards and get yor foot in the door before you can hope to get something at a similar level

I would be cautious about taking too much of a step backwards though. Lots of people seem to be moving here looking for a more relaxed pace of life and don't necessarily want the same level of pressure/responsibility as their UK job but forget there is a certain loss of status that goes with taking a couple of steps back too. Its hard to go back to being treated like a more junior employee that you are used to. I'm talking partly from experience here. Plus, even if you plan to switch jobs, there is that saying that "you are only as good as your last job" so other employers might ignore your amazing UK experience and base their perceptions of you on what your most recent position in Canada was. My advice: try to get the job you really want to begin with.
