I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this question so feel free to move it if its not appropriate here.
I am planning to go to the UK next year on the Youth Mobility work and travel visa however I am hearing mixed things about finding work over there. On one hand I hear from people that there are no jobs in Europe, the economy is really bad at the moment etc. On the other hand I hear that London and the UK is one of the places that has the most vfx companies per capita in the world. So I guess my question is, is it hard to find work over there at the moment in vfx? (My main area of expertise is compositing and I'd say I'd be between Junior and Mid weight having been in the VFX industry for 2 years now, have a couple of movies under my belt, though I've had more experience on tvc work.)
What's the best method of finding work over there? Agency, direct contact with company, any special job boards/mailing lists specifically for the UK industry?
Many thanks for your responses.
