Default Electrician wanting to move abroad

My husband has been an electrician for 14 yrs, He has worked on domestic, Commercial and industrial. he is fully qualified and has his inspection & Testing and has his City & Guilds. We are married with a 13 year old daughter and have been looking at moving abroad for a long time. We would consider moving anywhere, Does anyone have a good idea of what areas we can look at where his trade would be in high demand and is an affordable place to live and good to bring kids up. Many thanks.

This is such a wide reaching question and not one that anyone can really answer as we don't know you and your likes/dislikes etc.

IMO the most successful migrants are those that truly want to be in their destination country as opposed to those that are simply looking to leave the UK.(or any other country!)

Firstly examine what you are trying to achieve with your move, the grass isn't necessarily greener on the other side and problems at home are almost always magnified when you are thousands of miles away in a new country away from your family and friends.

Then research, research, research. What are you looking for in your new lifestyle? What countries have you visited that you would consider a move to? There is no substitute for a research trip.

Immigration is not for the faint hearted - good luck!
