I think you should target the company you want to work for and keep applying to the job openings and build a relationship with an HR manager or looking to meeting someone with the same position you want and talk to them about a mentorship program.

Guys im in the same boat!! looking to move over as I heard they need a lot of Aerospace engineers (avionics), yet I keep seeing "locals only"! so frustrating, yet there are plenty of openings and no "locals" seem to be taking them....god knows why they make it so hard for people to get an opportunity! I`ll keep you posted if I find a good agency or site...i`d appreciate if you would do the same.

Cheers,
Paul.

There are some companies that do the interview through the internet,
well this sounds weird but its true, you can google the job job you want
to apply for if you want a fast search

I believe that you will increase your chances of landing a job if you do the following in this order:

1. Obtain Permanent Residency immigration status via the federal skilled worker programme.

- This will mean for you to go to Canada to do the landing process and then return back to the UK.
- While you are there, you should open a bank account (preferably HSBC or RBC) and apply for your social insurance number.

2. Once you return back to the UK, subscribe for magic jack with a Canadian number. You can obtain this either as a downloadable app to your phone or as a USB dongle.

3. On your CV that you will use to apply for jobs in Canada, Change your UK address to a Canadian one and change your UK contact number to the magic number that was subscribed in 2.

4. Mass distribute your CV to job positions / vacancies in your chosen province.

5. If your prospective employer wishes to meet you in person for an interview, you can kindly explain to them your situation and that you will not require sponsorship or a work permit. If they wish to see you in person, then suggest a skype interview arrangement using webcam conferencing.

This strategy is proven to be effective.
