I need some advice.


I'm currently in New Zealand and have all my qualifications and work experience here.

Due to recent relationship developments, I intend to move to England but I have a couple of dilemmas.


Firstly, I'm trying to work out what all my various certificates/achievements in quality assurance and food safety might be equivalent to in England.  Are there any national standards with descriptions that I can have a look at?

Also, would it be beneficial to do a short online UK course in something food safety related?


If you were going to employ me, what would you be looking for in my CV?


Secondly, to get a work visa, I need to have a job offer from a company in the Tier 2 sponsorship program (also a company which doesn't mind an indeterminate starting date as I have to apply for the visa from over here AFTER i get a job offer).  Has anyone dealt with this before?  Does anyone know of companies in the Buckinghamshire area (preferable Milton Keynes) which would be good to approach with my CV?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
