Enquiries About UK’s Automotive Company

Hello Yan

Nice to meet you!

I found your website accidentally but it really impressed me. Your sincere and patient help for newcomers here will certainly be all appreciated by us.

I’m now working as a quality engineer in a China’s motor company and will go to IC to study MSc course in 2012. Since I want to try to apply for a UK job when graduating, I’m writing this to inquire about Britain automobile companies. Hope you can do me a favour.

First, I know such industry is not as booming in UK as that in China, but I believe there should be a few factories or R&D centres there. So, could you give me a related list of the good ones or something like that? This would help me to access to their website and get more details.

Second, I heard there are quite a few famous consulting companies like ATKINS in UK. I’m interested in whether there are similar ones in the automobile areas?

At last, I don’t know much about the area of engineeing consulting. If working as an engineer in such company, what is the work like? Is it very stressed, often having quite tight schedule and overworking?

Thank you very much

Best wishes

Carl Ding

  1. 你好。谢谢你对这个网站的支持。关于你的问题,汽车是英国的传统工业,但是近年来已经日渐衰败。几个大的品牌,如积架,路虎,罗孚等都已经被印度中国厂商收购。虽说工厂都搬走了,但英国仍然有汽车相关的产业及研发中心。相信找到汽车相关的工作不是不可能完成的任务。但找工作的关键,是签证的问题。你可能知道,英国这几年大幅度收紧签证移民政策,办工作签证变得越来越难。而且现在已经规定,即便你能获得5年的工作签证,5年后也不能取得永久居民身份。具体有哪些公司在招人,招什么样的人,因为我不是这个行业的,所以也不清楚。你用google搜索一下吧。或者来英国之后,学校都有career advisory office,他们给你一份这个行业的公司名单。
    在英国工作非常轻松无压力,除非你是在投行,咨询,四大。

  2. Yan 非常感谢你的解答。
    你说的签证我有所耳闻,只是还没来得及去官网详细阅读。
    我如果想留下工作一段时间,5年的工作签证是必须的吗?能简略谈谈这个签证的申请主要难在什么方面呢?
    现在Post Study已经废除了吧,还有没有2-3年的短期逗留签证可以用来工作呢?
    非常感谢!
    祝好

    • psw停止了,所以你如果要工作,就一定要tier2工作签证。每年全英国只有两万多个名额,分到每个公司也就是几个名额。而且如果公司要雇佣你,就必须有足够的理由证明他们不能在欧盟公民中找到更合适的人选。所以很多公司现在已经摆明了说,不招欧盟外人。
