Question Indian in Singapore - trying to move to UK

Hi Friends,

I am an Indian currently living in Singapore. We moved to Singapore from USA in Jan 2012 - yes its been just 10 months. I have worked in Europe, India and US and hubby has been in US for 7 yrs when we decided to move to Singapore.

But Singapore as a city is too much for us to handle. The work life stress and expenses are freaking me out. People here are always busy and everyone seems so materialistic and artificial to us. We do have some very good friends here but other than those few friends, people here are not very friendly in general.
We haven't really decided where to move to, but we thought UK would be a good choice.
My hubby works in the Oil & gas field - would it be easy for him to get a job in UK?
I am ans SAP technical consultant - what about my chances for a job.
I should say we do earn pretty well here. We were thinking about trying for move sometime in the second half of 2013....that would be one year from now.
I am not sure whether this is a very early post but any pointers on moving to UK and how to go about trying of job would be very much appreciated.

I can't comment on your chances for finding jobs in your particular fields, but the UK is in the middle of a recession with many people out of work across all sectors and any available job with have plenty of competition.

If 1 of you can land a job with a registered sponsor you'll be able to apply for a Tier 2 work visa and the other will be a Tier 2 dependent with the right to work.
