San Francisco to Newcastle on Tyne
« on: October 26, 2017, 04:28:56 PM »
Hi. I'm Mole, and I am applying for my radiography license in the UK; once I have the paperwork done & have my license I will be getting a job in the Toon and selling everything to move there. My wife and I had planned to retire there, but decided there was no point in waiting.
I'm happy to have found this site, lots of help here.

Welcome to the forum, and all the best for your move to the UK :).

Have you figured out which visa you can qualify for in order to move to Newcastle?

I've been a radiographer for over 20 years, so tier 2 visa after I get registered with H&CPC. Britain is short on radiographers, so work will be easy to find. I love Newcastle United, I love the Toon and the Geordies.
I've been in & around San Francisco my whole life, and in the last few years it has changed too much. With the tech boom, the city is full of young, well-off self entitled jerks, and homeless families. Artists have all been priced out, and my friends are either moving further and further away, leaving the state entirely, or bound by the "golden handcuffs", in a rent controlled unit they can't afford to move out of. There's very little left in this city.

Remember, you'll need to get employer sponsorship for a specific job on a Tier 2 visa before you can move to the UK though.

Every radiologist/hospital I've spoken with has said "Call us as soon as you have your registration", all the hospitals can sponsor. It is honestly the easiest part of this entire move.

I can think of 3 excellent reasons to start with:

Free Trade Inn
Crown Posada
Bodega
and the alcohol-free option, Ouseburn Farm

But wait, there's more!
-Pies at Red's
-Fancy dinners at Blackfriars
-St James Park -  It'll be much easier to sleep in, breakfast out, stroll to the pub (Bar Loco FTW) and get to the stadium by kickoff than getting up at 4 AM on a day off so I can get to the pub by kickoff, at 7 AM. Toon! Toon! Black & White Army!!
