Default working in the UK

Hi all,
is there a website such as this for those that are not british expats.
I am looking for information on working in the UK.

I believe I have to be sponsored to work in the UK by a company (i'm aged over 28) but i'd rather work on a contract basis rather than full-time.

I do not have the 65 points to get in on the Highly Skill migrant Programme.

Anyone have any links to information...aside from the home office website.

Thanks

KD

There's a few yank expat sites for the UK I know of...

But it's pretty hard getting a work permit in the UK, easiest way is to marry a brit

But you'll get more info posting in the moving to UK forum of the site.

I'm living with my british Girlfriend now....so if we carry on for another 22 months apparently I can get in.....

I can get in on sponsorship - have before - but this time I want to work on contract basis....makes it that bit harder.

thanks for the links.
