Reading, Berkshire?

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I posted -- I came back in 2011/12 with an 18-month-old and my American husband. Some of you might remember he was struggling to find work, but landed a role...

Re: American DH is having awful time finding job

He'll be commuting from Newark in Nottinghamshire for the moment, as I have a good permanent job in Lincoln. Not quite as bad as it sounds -- at an hour and a quarter on the train, it's actually...

Re: American DH is having awful time finding job

You folks are obviously my lucky stars for today because HE GOT THE SECOND JOB!!!! He is thrilled! We won't be quite as well off, as the train fares are astronomical, but it's in his field and...

Re: Banking upon return

I'm banking with Nationwide--they were lovely when I first arrived and I've found their customer service to be excellent. (If you call their customer line you get through straight away, unlike HSBC...

Re: American DH is having awful time finding job

Hi Folks,

Another update and this time with some more positive news. DH got a call from a local council that he'd interviewed for twice before about a temporary role. He interviewed for it on...

Re: Moving back to UK after 7 years in NZ with our toddlers.

Moved back in 2011 and my toddler loves it over here! Loves the green space, loves his nursery (which is a fraction of what it cost in the USA and they do so much more!), there are so many theme...

Re: Getting a job in UK while still abroad

I suppose it varies by sector but I found that no one was willing to even look at my application until I was in the country--it might be different if you're able to fly over for interviews but I...

Re: American DH is having awful time finding job

Thanks, I'll look into that. Someone had recommended National Careers Service too but they seem more geared up towards young adults.

Re: American DH is having awful time finding job

Apologies for the delay in response. We're in Lincolnshire...not exactly a thriving economic hub but it does have good rail links to London, Nottingham and Sheffield.

Thanks everyone--just found out he didn't get the job he interviewed for this week, but there is some good news from that: they at least gave him some feedback--some good and the bad is actionable so...

Re: American DH is having awful time finding job

Please no squabbles on my account! Idollard has made a few assumptions but I'm not offended by them.

I think there probably is something amiss in my "Dear Husband's" (;)) interview technique,...

Re: UK Spouse Visa Information - evidence required etc

Fortunately my DH was already issued his visa because I'd fall short of the income minimum by 1,200GBP...and getting a weekend job isn't exactly easy when you're trying to raise your toddler alone...

Re: Theresa May wants minimum income of £25,700; £49,000 if you have 2 kids

So slightly self-interested question but what happens to those of us who already have the visa? My DH is due to arrive on June 29th. He has a two-year visa. Will they just give him another temporary...

Re: Theresa May wants minimum income of £25,700; £49,000 if you have 2 kids

Re: DH got his visa! A little about how the process worked for us!

It'll depend on where you live, as the UKBA use the USCIS application support centres so there should be somewhere nice and local. My DH actually went to Varick Street in NYC, which was the same...

Re: Theresa May wants minimum income of £25,700; £49,000 if you have 2 kids
