Who Are We?

Hello All! I started this blog website as a way to put fellow Americans in Scotland in touch with job opportunities and training and education needed to qualify them for professional or skilled work in the UK that they are qualified for back home in the USA.

We started with a secret facebook group and most of the jobs and workers were in Glasgow but now we’ve moved wider afield and cover Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

We are hoping to get people to move over to here from linked in.

We had some great success over the last 3 years finding jobs for over 340 people!

As you will know if you have been guided here from our university and college network we concentrate on working with USA workers with residency in the UK or who will apply for residency when they arrive. The workers can be student graduates or college graduates who have done or who are looking for courses in the UK to update their USA qualifications in line with the equivalent UK qualifications.

From tree surgeons to electricians and gas engineers all the way through to computer programmers, nurses and doctors we can work with nearly any type of qualification.
