Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

If you come a from a country not in the EEA (listed below) that may also be the problem.

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Iceland*, Liechtenstein*, Norway*, Switzerland**

* These countries are in the EEA, but are not members of the European Union.

** Switzerland is not in the EEA, but an international treaty means that from 1 June 2002 Swiss nationals have a similar right to live in the UK as EEA nationals.

"The only thing i assume that is holding these companies back is the lack of work permit"

i thought you have to get a job before getting a work permit.

Most major constuction companies are in desperate need for planners. The only thing i assume that is holding these companies back is the lack of work permit. most companies will not even consider you without a work permit so it’s best to seek advice on getting one. The major companies are: Mace, McAlpine, Skanska, Laing O’Rourke, etc.
As the construction industry is having a shortage of planners, a degree will help. i think it’s just the work permit holding you back, not the qualification.

Thank you sir,
It would have been better if the jobs posted on the planet mentions some note like "work permit is needed for this company" so that many ppl like me wudnt try for all jobs and also managing their database wud bcome simpler.

i once again thank you for replying and for giving guidance in major companies.
