What jobs are in high demand?

What jobs are the easiest to find a position for?

What jobs are the safest in the ailing world economy?

Whats your job?

Dunno but surely its less about the job per se. and more about bringing skills and experience not available on the local market

See above

Arguably none, save insolvency practicioners. The Defence sector is doing well at the moment. Not so much for automotive and telecoms.
Whats your job?
Purchasing
How are the employers and co-workers attitudes towards foreign workers?
They like my accent.

Store work but you won't earn enough


What jobs are the safest in the ailing world economy?


Repossession Companies and Debt Collectors


Whats your job?



Store Assistant or as my wage slip states Sales Associate (sounds cool, eh?)


How are the employers and co-workers attitudes towards foreign workers?

As stated they like my accent but don't get my humour, can't win them all
