For an American to work in the UK, legally, one must obtain a Tier 2 work visa.
For this you need a sponsoring employer. The employer must expend time and money to obtain such a visa, and therefore there is a very specific list of jobs which are eligible for this visa. The majority are professional roles in finance, IT, management, engineering etc.
Obviously, Eurostar are not offering sponsorship for this job, and indeed, they have a wealth of Brits and Europeans to fulfill this post.
