There has been talk about working as an occupational therapist or a physiotherapist in the UK recently on this site. Apart from getting accreditation with the concerned registration bodies so that you can be licensed to work there, we have discussed a few tips on how to land a job there as well.
You might want to consider being employed in the major cities of the UK where the pay is higher. Jobs in London are worth looking into if you want to live in a place where only the convenience of a city can provide. If you are a city person, it is a no-brainer that you would rather look for London jobs instead of the ones in the country or in the suburbs.
Getting a job in the UK is a great option if you are planning to work overseas. The exchange rate is good so you’ll get more for what you worked for.
